Products - Acidulants > Glucono Delta Lactone
Glucono-delta-lactone; an acidulant often abbreviated to GDL. (Not to be confused with Glucoronolactone, D-glucorono-3,6-lactone, or DGL).

It hydrolyses to form gluconic acid in water and thereby creates the desired pH. The rate of acid formation is affected by temperature, concentration and the pH of the solution. It has low acid release at room temperature and accelerates the conversion to gluconic acid as the temperature increases.

It is readily soluble in water and is used a chemical leavening agent in tofu and also as a pH modifier in smallgoods such as sausages and frankfurters.

It is thought to be one of the best acids to reduce pH without giving an excessive acidic flavour profile to the food product.
