Glucono delta lactone E-575, centipede in your kitchen
Glucono delta lactone, often abbreviated to GDL, is a naturally occurring food ingredient. It is known as an acidity regulator. It is used in the production of foodstuffs to lower the pH, or acidity, of the product. In addition to acidity control, you can also use Glucono delta lactone to slow down the deterioration of your product and prevent discolouration. You can use it as an anti-caking agent and raising agent as well. In short, Glucono delta lactone is a centipede in your kitchen. At Natural Spices you can order the synthesized variant online. It has E-number 575. You can buy Glucono delta lactone in a package of 800 grams.
The characteristics of Glucono delta lactone
Glucono delta lactone is in fact a synthesized glucose. Its natural variant (gluconic acid) is present in honey and wine. It is a glucose molecule that is oxidised to an acidic function, i.e. an oxidation product of dextrose. When dissolved in water or an aqueous substance, it slowly but surely hydrolyzes to this gluconic acid. This produces a slight acidification, in the same way as lactic acid-producing bacteria do. The pH then drops from 3.6 to 2.5. Glucono delta lactone is a white crystalline powder with a sweet-bitter taste and an acidic aftertaste. It is virtually odourless and can be metabolised in the body like a carbohydrate. It is completely vegan and gluten free.
Since you can apply Glucono delta lactone for various purposes, you can imagine that the number of products in which this substance is used is large. This accelerates the maturation of dry sausages. You can add it to black pudding, casserole rib, saveloy, corned beef and much more. There is a maximum daily use attached to the use of this additive. Please take a look at the website of the European Commission: Food Additives Database.
