Cyclodextrin Market Outlook 

Cyclodextrins are cyclic oligosaccharides that are produced by enzymatic conversion of starch. Cyclodextrins consists of a macrocyclic ring of glucose joined together by α-1, 4 glycosidic bonds. The production of cyclodextrin is reported from different starch sources such as tapioca, rice, and wheat, potato, and corn. Cyclodextrins are of three types alpha-cyclodextrin, beta-cyclodextrin, and gamma-cyclodextrin. Each type contains a different number of glucose subunits. Alpha-cyclodextrins contains 6 glucose subunits, beta-cyclodextrin contains 7 glucose subunits, and gamma-cyclodextrin contains 8 glucose subunits. Cyclodextrins finds its application in pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic, chemical industries and drug delivery. In the pharmaceutical industry cyclodextrin is mainly used as a complexing agent to enhance aqueous solubility and stability of poorly soluble drugs. It can also be used to lower gastrointestinal drug irritation. It converts the liquid drug into amorphous powder or microcrystalline form, and prevent drug-excipient and drug-drug interactions.

Growing Applications of Cyclodextrins in Food Industries. 

Cyclodextrins are widely used in the food industry as a food additive. Cyclodextrin in food products is mainly used to stabilize flavors. Cyclodextrins are also capable of forming inclusion complexes. Cyclodextrins used as a dietary fiber in foods.  These are also used for oil in water emulsions in the formation of mayonnaise and other such products. Cyclodextrins have a low glycemic index and reduce the glycemic index of food. Cyclodextrins are also used to control blood lipid and body weight. Cyclodextrins also have antidiabetic and anti-obesity effects that make them bioactive nutraceuticals and food supplements. Cyclodextrins are mainly used in cholesterol free products. Beta-Cyclodextrin have been shown to increase water solubility, intensify color, and improve light stability in certain carotenoid food colorants.
