Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone, sometimes abbreviated to neohesperidin DC or simply NHDC, is an artificial sweetener and flavor modifier derived from citrus. Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone is 1500-1800 times sweeter than sugar at threshold concentrations; around 340 times sweeter than sugar weight-for-weight .
Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone can be used as a sweetener or flavor enhancer, which has been authorized by all of the EU's member countries, USA, Australia, New Zealand, and several countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. What’s more, recent developments have also paved the way for the use of Neohesperidin
Dihydrochalcone in those pharmaceutical products which need a taste improvement.
