Neohesperidin dihydrochalcone ( NHDC ) is an excellent sweetener
derived from natural ingredients of citrus (naringin or hesperidin)
by biotransformation or chemical transformation. NHDC is an
efficient sweetener, sweetness and flavour enhancer with non-toxic,
low calorific, flavor and bitterness masking characteristics. It
also has some physiological activity, such as antioxidant ,
reduction of cholesterol and blood glucose. It is used in a wide
range of products including foods, medicines, dietary supplements,
cosmetics and feeds.
1. Food Sweetener / Sweetness Enhancer NHDC is a low calorific
sweetener roughly 1500-1800 times sweeter than sugar. Its sweet
tastes like licorice. It has a strong synergistic effect when used
in conjunction with other artificial sweeteners such as aspartame,
saccharin, acesulfame potassium, and cyclamate, as well as sugar
alcohols such as xylitol. NHDC usage boosts the effects of these
sweeteners; smaller amounts of other sweeteners are needed, and
reduce the costs. Widely used in water-base, milk-based, and
juice-based beverages, ice-creams, wines, desserts, cakes, bakery
products, candies, chewing guns, sauces, etc.
2. Sweetener for Dietary Supplements NHDC is a low calorific
sweetener, and also some physiological activities, such as
antioxidant activity, reduction of cholesterol and blood glucose.
It is particularly applicable for functional foods, health care
products, and dietary supplements as a alternative sweetener,
including liquid dietary supplements, solid dietary supplements,
syrup and chewable dietary supplement.
3. Bitterness Masking for Pharmaceuticals Pharmaceutical companies
found that NHDC can bind to bitter receptor even below its
sweetness threshold, and reduce the bitterness of pharmaceutical
drugs in tablet or syrup form. In Europe, Viagra and pediatric
ibuprofen suspension were both added with NHDC as a means of
masking the bitterness.
4. Food Flavor / Flavor Enhancer The flavor of NHDC is similar to
maltol and ethyl maltol, and it produces significant synergistic
effect with other flavor ingredient. Widely used in frozen milk
products, candies, puddings, fruit juices, non-alcoholic beverages,
condiments, jams, chewing gums and so on.
