Alpha-Cyclodextrin Production Cost Analysis 2021

Alpha-Cyclodextrin weighs about 972.g/mol. It is a hexasaccharide derived from glucose.

β- (beta) and γ- (gamma) cyclodextrins are related to this chemical compound, which contains seven and eight glucose units, respectively. In appearance, all the cyclodextrins are white, water-soluble solids, with minimal toxicity. Cyclodextrins bind other molecules in their quasi-cylindrical interiors. This inclusion (and release) behaviour leads to its extensive applications in the pharmaceutical sector.

α-Cyclodextrin finds its application in a range of medical, healthcare, and food and beverage applications. For example, in drug delivery, this cyclodextrin confers aqueous solubility to hydrophobic drugs and stability to labile drugs.

α-Cyclodextrin (α-CD) is a soluble fibre that can be extracted from corn. It has been reported that early intervention with Mirafit fbcx (a trademarked name for α-CD) has shown beneficial effects on weight management in obese individuals with type 2 diabetes.

It also reduces saturated and trans-fat levels in the blood of the LDL receptor knockout mice. These results suggest that α-CD exerts its beneficial health effects on body weight and blood lipid profile in healthy nonobese individuals, as well as previously reported obese individuals with type 2 diabetes.
