    Sweetness Enhancer: NHDC has crisp taste, lasting aftertaste, high sweetness, it has a strong synergistic effect when used in conjunction with other artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, saccharin, acesulfame potassium, and cyclamate, as well as sugar alcohols such as xylitol. NHDC usage boosts the effects of these sweeteners; smaller amounts of other sweeteners are needed, and reduce the costs. Widely used in juice beverages, milk beverage, wines, bakery products, etc.


    Sweetener for Dietary supplements: NHDC is a low calorific sweetener, and also some physiological activities, such as antioxidant activity, reduction of cholesterol and blood glucose. It is particularly applicable for functional foods, health care products, and dietary supplements as a alternative sweetener.
