What is Cirtrus Aurantium?
Citrus Aurantium is derived from a native citrus fruit that is actually native to southern Vietnam and has
been used for years in different industries. The fastest growing of those is in the weight loss supplement
industry. Commonly known as an effective fatburner, Citrus Aurantium is added to many weight loss
formulas for its ability to increase your metabolism and suppress your appetite.
What is Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone?
Neohesperidin dihydrochalcone, sometimes abbreviated to neohesperidin DC or simply NHDC, is an artificial sweetener derived from citrus.
It is particularly effective in masking the bitter tastes of other compounds found in citrus, including limonin and naringin. Industrially, it is produced by extracting
neohesperidin from the bitter orange, and then hydrogenating this to make NHDC.
The product is well known for having 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 at lower concentrations than would otherwise be
required; smaller amounts of other sweeteners are needed. This provides a cost benefit.
