Neohesperidin is one such bitter compound. When treated with potassium hydroxide or another strong base, and then catalytically hydrogenated, it becomes NHDC, a compound roughly 1500-1800 times sweeter than sugar at threshold concentrations; around 340 times sweeter than sugar weight-for-weight. Its potency is naturally affected by such factors as the application it is used for, and the pH of the product.

Like other highly sweet glycosides, such as glycyrrhizin and those found in stevia, NHDC's sweet taste has a slower onset than sugar's and lingers in the mouth for some time. Unlike aspartame, NHDC is stable to elevated temperatures and to acidic or basic conditions, and so can be used in applications that require a long shelf life. NHDC itself can stay foodsafe for up to five years when stored in optimal conditions. Neohesperidin DC is well known for having a strong synergistic effect when used in conjunction with other artificial such as aspartame, saccharin, acesulfame potassium, and cyclamate, as well as sugar alcohols such as xylitol. NHDC usage boosts the effects of these at lower concentrations than would otherwise be required; smaller amounts of other sweeteners are needed. This provides a cost benefit.

Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone is an intense sweetener which is severval hundred times sweeter than sucrose at the applied concentration. Currently, NHDC is authorized for human consumption, either as a sweetener or as a flavour modifier.For the low calorie and good taste, Neohesperidin Dihydrochalcone can be widely used in obesity and diabetic.
