1. What is Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone?
Neohesperidin dihydrochalcone (NHDC) is derived from a natural source, synthesized by neohesperidin, a bitter component of bitter orange, grapefruit, and other citrus fruit peel and pulp. NHDC was discovered during the 1960s as part of a United States Department of Agriculture research program to find methods for minimizing the taste of bitter flavorants in citrus juices.
Neohesperidin is a kind of bitter compound, When treated with potassium hydroxide or another strong base, and then catalytically hydrogenated, it becomes NHDC, a compound roughly 1500-1800 times sweeter than sugar at threshold concentrations; around 340 times sweeter than sugar weight-for-weight. It has been included GB2760(#S0269) as a food flavor.
It functions to mask bitter taste in beverages/juice drinking especially for citrus juice, and enhances the sweetness of other sweeteners. It has already been used to mask bitterness in pharmaceuticals.
As a kind of low calorie artificial sweeteners and sweeteners for diabetics, NHDC will be widely applied in food and pharmaceuticals fields. Also, Neohesperidin dihydrochalcone can be used in skin care field for whitening.
Our NHDC is NON-GMO,NON-Irradiation,NON-polluted source, best choice for you to add our Neohesperidin dihydrochalcone in your sugar free products.
