for the cosmetic industry
Dihydroxyacetone is mainly used as a formula raw material for cosmetics, especially as a sunscreen with special effects, which can prevent excessive evaporation of skin moisture, and play the role of moisturizing, sun protection and UV radiation protection. In addition, the ketone functional group in DHA can react with the amino acids and amino groups of skin keratin to form brown polymers, which can give people an artificial brown color, so it can also be used as a sun-tanned skin tone simulator, resulting in a similar appearance to the skin. Prolonged exposure to sunlight results in a brown or tan skin that looks beautiful.
Increase the lean meat rate of pigs
Dihydroxyacetone is an intermediate product of sugar metabolism, which plays an important role in the process of sugar metabolism, and has the effect of reducing body fat and increasing lean meat rate in pigs. Japanese scientific and technical personnel have proved through experiments that adding a certain amount of DHA and pyruvate (calcium salt) mixture (in a weight ratio of 3:1) to pig feed can reduce the fat content of pig back meat by 12% to 15%. , the fat content of the leg meat and the longest back muscle was correspondingly reduced, and the protein content was increased.
for functional food
Supplementation with dihydroxyacetone (especially in combination with pyruvate) can increase metabolic rate and fatty acid oxidation, potentially effectively burn fat while reducing body fat and delaying weight gain (weight loss), and reducing the incidence of related diseases, also It can improve insulin sensitivity and reduce plasma cholesterol levels caused by high-cholesterol meals. Long-term supplementation can increase blood glucose utilization and save muscle glycogen. For athletes, it can improve aerobic endurance performance.
