    Cyclodextrin - Texturizing

    Alpha-cyclodextrin permanently stabilizes oil-in-water emulsions. The interior of the doughnut-shaped alpha-cyclodextrin molecule is lipophilic (i.e. fat-loving), while its exterior is hydrophilic (water-loving). Fatty acid groups can “slip” into the interior of the alpha-cyclodextrin and form a surfactant structure, similar to an emulsifier.
