Product description

The main flavonoid present in bitter oranges and is employed as the raw material in the manufacture of the sweetener NHP-DC. NHDC is approximately 1500-1800 times sweeter than sucrose. NHDC was first obtained by Horowitz and Gentili around 30 years ago, although it was not widely accepted by the food Industry because of inadequate applications and uses. This sweetener has not been found in nature as yet, although many dihydrochalcones with similar structure to NHDC are present, some of which have been used as natural sweeteners. Applications: Beverages, desserts & related products, savory products, cosmetics: tooth-paste, mouth-wash,pharmaceutical products, feedstuffs. NHDC is obtained by hydrogenation of Neohesperidine.
