So, what is dioctyl sodium sulphosuccinate?

Dioctyl sodium sulphosuccinate, also known as DSS, is a water-soluble surfactant commonly used as an emulsifier and wetting agent in various food products. This ingredient is derived from succinic acid, a natural substance found in many fruits and vegetables. DSS helps to stabilize emulsions, preventing separation of ingredients such as oil and water. It is often added to baked goods, sauces, and beverages to improve texture and appearance. Despite concerns about its safety in high doses, DSS is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at levels up to 5%.
