CAVAMAX® I WACKER Cyclodextrins

Cyclodextrins are oligosaccharides obtained by enzymatic conversion of starch. WACKER is the only company in the world to manufacture all three naturally occuring cyclodextrins – α, β and γ, marketed under CAVAMAX®.The characteristic feature of cyclodextrins is their ring-shaped, three-dimensional structure. The hydrophilic outer surface ensures compatibility with aqueous systems, while the hydrophobic cavity can complex specific "guest" molecules. This three dimensional structure is the key to a wide range of opportunities. WACKER's CAVACURMIN® and CAVAQ10® contain curcumin and CoQ10 with significantly increased bioavailability.
