E959 — пищевая добавка, антифламинг, подсластитель, усилитель вкуса: неогесперидин дигидрохалкон, neohesperidin dihydrochalcone (Е959)

Neohesperidine dihydrochalcone (NHDC) is a natural high potency non-caloric sweetener derived from citrus oranges which is 1500-1800 times sweeter than sucrose (sugar). It is commercially produced by extracting neohesperidin from seville oranges and citrus and then hydrogenating this with alkali to make Neohesperidine dihydrochalcone. The result is an odourless white to pale yellow crystalline powder which is soluble in cold water but highly soluble in hot water and ethanol. It has good stability over a wide range of pH, and temperatures, making it suitable for use in products that require a long shelf life. It has a licorice-like taste with slow onset but leaves a strong lingering aftertaste. It also has a synergistic sweetening effect when combined with other low-calorie sweeteners such as aspartame, saccharin, acesulfame potassium, cyclamate, and xylitol, and is used as a flavour enhancer.
