Alpha-Cyclodextrin is a polysaccharide derived from six units of glucose linked end to end via α-1,4 linkages. As all cyclodextrins, it appears as white, water soluble solid with minimal toxicity. It is a multifunctional compound, marketed for use as a fiber ingredient, an odor or flavor masking agent, as emulsificant agent, and for medical and healthcare applications. Cyclodextrins are products of the enzymatic degradation of starch from vegetable materials.
