Description

General description

α-Cyclodextrin (α-CD) is a cyclic oligosaccharide that consists of six glucopyranose units linked by α-(1,4) bonds. It can form a stable complex with dietary fat, which is resistant to lipolytic hydrolysis and is excreted intact leading to weight loss.

Application

α-CD can act as a stabilizer for emulsions such as mayonnaise, margarine or butter creams. The addition of α-CD (5-10%) to soy protein hydrolysate solution led to a decrease in its bitterness due to the formation of inclusion complexes with its amino acids.
