α-Cyclodextrin

{{ i.item.name }}

Product Description

α-Cyclodextrin is a polysaccharide of six glucose units that are covalently attached end-to-end via α-1, 4 linkages. There are two other naturally occurring cyclodextrins, β- and Ɣ-, which contain seven and eight glucose units respectively. In water, these fibers take on a toroid or truncated cone configuration. In aqueous medium, the exterior surface of cyclodextrins is hydrophilic while the interior core is hydrophobic. This allows for the formation of guest-host relationships with small hydrophobic molecules.

α-Cyclodextrin is a natural, soluble dietary fiber. It has the unique ability among known fibers to bind nine times its weight in fat. This high ratio of binding makes α-Cyclodextrin practical as a weight loss supplement.
