So, what is cyclodextrin?

Cyclodextrin is a type of carbohydrate molecule that is produced through the enzymatic conversion of starch. It has a unique ring-shaped structure that makes it useful in a variety of food applications, including as a flavor and aroma enhancer, encapsulating agent, and fat replacer. Cyclodextrins have the ability to trap and stabilize aromatic compounds, which can help to improve the overall quality and shelf life of food products. They are also used in the production of dietary supplements and pharmaceuticals due to their ability to form inclusion complexes with a wide range of molecules.
