Product Description
NHDC Sweetener Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone

1. Neohesperidin is one such bitter compound.
When treated with potassium hydroxide or another strong base, and then catalytically hydrogenated,
it becomes NHDC, a compound roughly 1500-1800 times sweeter than sugar at threshold concentrations;
around 340 times sweeter than sugar weight-for-weight. Its potency is naturally affected
by such factors as the application in which it is used, and the pH of the product.

2. Like other highly sweet glycosides, such as glycyrrhizin and those found in stevia,
NHDC's sweet taste has a slower onset than sugar's and lingers in the mouth for some time.

3. Unlike aspartame, NHDC is stable to elevated temperatures and to acidic or basic conditions,
and so can be used in applications that require a long shelf life.
NHDC itself can stay foodsafe for up to five years when stored in optimal conditions.
