Glucono Delta Lactone (GDL), also known as D-gluconic acid delta-lactone, is an organic acidulant and flavoring agent widely used in food processing. It is a white odorless crystalline powder with the chemical formula C6H10O6 and CAS number 90-80-2. When dissolved in water, GDL is slowly hydrolyzed to gluconic acid, making solutions acidic. As a food-grade acidulant, GDL is used to adjust pH, improve texture and extend shelf life of products.
Some main uses of GDL include:
• As a pH regulator in bakery products to develop crust color and texture.
• In dairy products to control acidity, coagulate proteins and produce sour taste.
• In meat products as an acidic flavor enhancer and preservative.
• In beverages to produce a tarter flavor.
• In confectionery products to improve mouthfeel and prevent stickiness.
