Cream fillings without unhealthy solid fats? Or baked goods with a reduced egg content? That’s possible. Thanks to cyclodextrins from WACKER. They have excellent emulsifying properties, stabilize sugar foam and creams, and can replace hardened fats. This makes them beneficial for a slim figure and cholesterol levels – and all that entirely without animal constituents, as cyclodextrins are derived from corn starch. With this synergy between biotechnology and chemistry, WACKER supports innovative small businesses in the food industry.
Antioxidants for Cosmetics & Energy Bars
Hydroxytyrosol is an olive-based active ingredient intended to prevent a great many diseases, boost the immune system and inhibit inflammatory processes. It is therefore used in skin creams and functional foods. WACKER has now found a way to make this active ingredient synthetically. Manufacturers are thus less dependent on the availability of olives and can use the substance in a highly pure form.
Safely Tucked Away
Some nutritional supplements are good for our health, but their ingredients don’t really taste that good. Cyclodextrins from WACKER solve this problem: they encapsulate the health-promoting ingredient so that we can’t taste it, yet allow it to exert its positive effects on the body. Cyclodextrins also protect sensitive substances from environmental influences.
