Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone (Neohesperidosyl dihydrochalcone, Neohesperidin DC, NHDC) is a flavonoid derivative obtained by hydrogenating neohesperidin extracted from natural citrus plants. It is an artificial sweetener (1500 to 1800 times the sweetness of sucrose).
Dihydrochalcone is a very important active ingredient with antioxidant, anti-tumor, anti-diabetic, antibacterial and estrogen-like effects. It has been approved as a sweetener in Europe. In 1997, neohesperidin dihydrochalcone was listed as a supplement to the "Hygienic Standards for the Use of Food Additives" by the Ministry of Health of the People's Republic of China and can be used in the food industry. It has a strong sweetness and a refreshing taste, a long-lasting aftertaste and excellent bitterness shielding effect.
