Wacker Chemie AG


WACKER offers tailored and innovative solutions and products for the functional food and nutraceutical industry. For example our soluble dietary fiber CAVAMAX® W6.  It can be added as a fully fermentable dietary fiber to foods and beverages, including carbonated and non-carbonated transparent soft drinks. CAVAMAX® W6 is scientifically proven to significantly reduce the post-prandial glycaemic response – an effect officially acknowledged by the EU with a health claim. Besides, it interacts with triglycerides building up a surfactant-like structure that stabilizes oil-in-water emulsions efficiently. With CAVAMAX® W6, WACKER thus offers manufacturers a possibility to replace emulsifiers with a soluble fiber. It enables for example oil-based icing applications or emulsifier-free dressings and sauces. Furthermore it allows whipping without fat and thus offers new opportunities for whipped products. CAVAMAX® W6 is naturally occurring carbohydrate derived from starch.

WACKER offers also molecular encapsulation solutions for odor or taste masking, to stabilize sensitive ingredients or to increase the bioavailability of certain ingredients like curcumin.

Furthermore WACKER produces a high-quality range of non-human, non-animal derived L-cysteine products.

With a 16,300-strong workforce, 24 production sites in Europe, Americas and Asia, and over 100 subsidiaries and sales offices worldwide, we have established a strong presence in all key economic regions and growth markets.
