Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone (NHDC), also known as Neohesperidin DC Sweetener (E-959), is a potent non-caloric sweetening agent derived from citrus sources. It is obtained through the alkaline hydrogenation of neohesperidin, a compound found in citrus fruits. NHDC is exceptionally sweet, up to 1000 times sweeter than sucrose, and contains no calories. Its intense sweetness profile, coupled with its natural origin, makes NHDC a versatile and sought-after alternative to traditional sugar.
