Wacker Chemie AG


WACKER offers tailored and innovative solutions and products for the functional food and nutraceutical industry.

Our soluble dietary fiber CAVAMAX®​ W6 ​for example replaces emulsifiers,​ enabling oil-based icing applications or emulsifier-free dressings and sauces. Furthermore it allows whipping without fat​ and thus offers new opportunities for whipped products. WACKER offers also molecular encapsulation solutions for odor- or taste-masking, to stabilize food ingredients​ and to increase the bioavailability of functional ingredients​.

CAVAMAX®​ W6 alphadextrin can also be added as a dietary fiber​, since it is scientifically proven to significantly reduce the post-prandial glycaemic response​ – an effect officially acknowledged by the EU with a health claim.

By complexation with WACKER’s CAVAMAX®​ gamma-cyclodextrin curcumin’s bioavailability is enhanced considerably. CAVACURMIN®​ is a highly bioavailable curcumin​ powder, which is about 40 times more efficiently absorbed​ compared to pure curcumin powder or some leading commercial curcumin supplement products.

Hydroxytyrosol​ is considered one of the most powerful antioxidants​. HTEssence®​ is highly pure (98%)​ nature-identical hydroxytyrosol and comes as a pure and white, odorless​ product.

Furthermore WACKER produces a high-quality range of non-human, non-animal derived L-cysteine ​products by our patented fermentation process. Our L-cysteine products are approved for the use in vegetarian, even vegan, kosher and halal foods​.
