Product : Alpha cyclodextrin
Molecular Formula: C36H60O30
Molecular weight: 972.84
CAS NO.: 10016-20-3
Physical state: white power
Chemical name: alpha-Cyclodextrin, cyclohexaamylose, cyclomaltohexaose
Food grade Alpha cyclodextrin from Shandong Binzhou Zhiyuan Biotechnology Co., Ltd.
Food grade Alpha cyclodextrin with 6 glucose units has the smallest cavity of the parent cyclodextrins. It is useful for solubilizing, stabilizing or delivering small molecules, e.g. low molecular weight, flavor or fragrance compounds.
Food grade Alpha cyclodextrin is being introduced to the food industry as a new soluble dietary fiber with convincing properties.
Alpha cyclodextrin as a novel food ingredient
Storage at room temperature in sealed
containers under dry conditions is recommended.
Food grade Alpha cyclodextrin has a shelf life of at least 24 months when stored in unbroken original packaging in dry storage areas. The best use before date of each batch is shown on the product label.
Storage beyond the date specified on the label does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
Alpha cyclodextrin is a non-reducing cyclic saccharide comprised of six glucose units linked by alpha-1.4 bonds. It is produced by the action of cyclodextrin glucosyl transferase on hydrolysed starch syrups. The cavity of alpha-cyclodextrin is less than beta-cyclodextrin, so it is used to allow formation of inclusion complexes with little molecules. The solubility degree of Alpha-cyclodextrin in water is 14.5 g/100ml @ 25°C, so the situation that needs high solubility of cyclodextrin.
