WACKER offers tailored and innovative solutions and products for the functional food and nutraceutical industry.
Our soluble dietary fiber CAVAMAX® W6 for example replaces emulsifiers, enabling 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 alphadextrin can also be added as a dietary fiber, since it is scientifically proven to significantly reduce the post-prandial glycaemic response – an effect officially acknowledged by the EU with a health claim.
WACKER offers also molecular encapsulation solutions for odor- or taste-masking, to stabilize food ingredients and to increase the bioavailability of functional ingredients.
By complexation with WACKER’s CAVAMAX® gammadextrin curcumin’s bioavailability is enhanced considerably. CAVAMAX® W8 curcumin is a highly bioavailable curcumin powder, which is more than 40 times more efficiently absorbed compared to leading commercial curcumin supplement products or curcumin powder itself.
Hydroxytyrosol is considered one of the most powerful antioxidants. HTEssence® is highly pure (98%) nature-identical hydroxytyrosol and comes as a pure and white, odorless product.
Furthermore WACKER produces a high-quality range of non-human, non-animal derived L-cysteine products by our patented fermentation process. Our L-cysteine products are approved for the use in vegetarian, even vegan, kosher and halal foods.
