So, what is esters polyglycériqués d'acides gras?

Esters polyglycériqués d'acides gras, also known as polyglycerol esters of fatty acids, are a class of food additives commonly used in processed foods to improve their texture, stability, and shelf-life. These esters are derived from natural sources such as vegetable oils and consist of a combination of polyglycerol and fatty acids. As emulsifiers, they help to prevent the separation of ingredients in foods and ensure a smooth, consistent texture. They are considered safe for consumption by most regulatory bodies, although excessive intake may lead to digestive issues.
