By complexation with WACKER’s CAVAMAX® gamma-cyclodextrin the bioavailability of certain ingredients can be increased considerably. CAVACURMIN® is a highly bioavailable curcumin powder, which is about 40 times more efficiently absorbed compared to pure curcumin powder or some leading commercial curcumin supplement products.
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.
WACKER offers also a soluble dietary fiber that is scientifically proven to significantly reduce the post-prandial glycaemic response – an effect officially acknowledged by the EU with a health claim. The fiber CAVAMAX® W6 is a naturally occurring oligosaccharide derived from starch. Moreover can CAVAMAX® W6 be used for molecular encapsulation solutions for odor or taste masking and to stabilize sensitive ingredients.
WACKER also produces a high-quality range of non-human, non-animal derived L-cysteine products. Starting from raw materials of vegetable origin and inorganic trace elements, we manufacture by our patented fermentation process. Our L-cysteine products are approved for the use in vegetarian, kosher and halal foods.
