Healthy Sugar Citrus Aurantium Extract Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone Used In Sweetener
Neohesperidin dihydrochalcone, sometimes abbreviated to neohesperidin DC or simply NHDC, is an artificial sweetener derived from citrus. Neohesperidin dihydrochalcone is a flavonoid derivative obtained by hydrogenation of neohesperidin extracted from natural citrus plants. As a high-sweetness, low-calorie sweetener, NHDC has a sweetness of about 1500 times that of sucrose. It has been widely used in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries for more than half a century. Compared with chemically synthesized high-intensity sweeteners, neohesperidin dihydrochalcone has higher safety and stability. Compared with other natural sweeteners, neohesperidin dihydrochalcone has high sweetness, low calories, and taste closer to sucrose. In addition, regular consumption of neohesperidin dihydrochalcone is beneficial to regulate blood sugar, has a certain preventive effect on cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, and can also promote mineral absorption.
With the progress of society, the development of technology and the improvement of living standards, consumers' requirements for food are not limited to satisfying taste, but are more inclined to seek food with health care functions. For sweet foods, the intake of sucrose will become less and less, and high-power sweeteners used to replace sucrose will gradually become the overlord of the sweet world.
Neohesperidin dihydrochalcone is prepared by hydrogenating raw materials extracted from natural citrus plants and is a green food additive. Currently in our country, it is allowed to be widely used in food and feed. Compared with other sweeteners, it has lower calories, so there is no adverse effect on human blood sugar and blood lipid levels. These characteristics are very attractive to consumers who are paying more and more attention to their own health.
