Glucono delta-lactone (GDL) is a naturallyoccurring food additive with the E number E575used as a sequestrant, an acidifier, or a curing, pickling, or leavening agent. It is a lactone (cyclic ester) of D-gluconic acid. Pure GDL is a white odorless crystalline powder.
Glucono-Delta-Lactone is commonly found in honey, fruit juices, personal lubricants, and wine. Glucono-Delta-Lactone is neutral, but hydrolyses in water to gluconic acid which is acidic, adding a tangy taste to foods, though it has roughly a third of the sourness of citric acid. It is metabolized to glucose; one gram of Glucono-Delta-Lactone yields roughly the same amount of metabolic energy as one gram of sugar.
Glucono-Delta-Lactone is one of the popular food additives and ingredients in most countries, As a professional Glucono-Delta-Lactone supplier and manufacturer, Pandachem International Corporation has been supplying and exporting Glucono-Delta-Lactone from China for many years, please be assured to buy Glucono-Delta-Lactone at Pandachem.
