Wacker Biosolutions, Wacker’s life science and biotechnology division, offers a broad range of innovative tailored products and solutions for the life science sector –, particularly for the functional food and nutraceutical industries. 

These include Cavamax® W6 alpha-cyclodextrin, a natural, starch-derived oligosaccharide. It can be added as a fully fermentable dietary fiber to foods and beverages, including carbonated and non-carbonated transparent soft drinks. Cavamax® W6 is scientifically proven to significantly reduce the post-prandial glycaemic response – an effect officially acknowledged by EFSA. Besides, it interacts with triglycerides building up a surfactant-like structure that stabilizes oil-in-water emulsions efficiently. With Cavamax® W6, Wacker thus offers manufacturers a possibility to replace emulsifiers with a soluble fiber.

Furthermore, Wacker offers molecular encapsulation solutions based on our cyclodextrin technology for odor or taste-masking, to stabilize food ingredients against heat and oxidation and to increase the bioavailability of functional ingredients. We have over 15 years of experience in manufacturing and formulating alpha-, beta- and gamma-cyclodextrins. 

Additionally, Wacker produces a high-quality range of non-human, non-animal derived L-cysteine products. Wacker is the world’s only manufacturer of vegetarian-grade cysteine using a patented biotech process.
