So, what is dodecyltetradecanol?

Dodecyltetradecanol is a versatile food ingredient that serves as an emulsifier, solubilizer, and thickening agent in various food products. It is a long-chain fatty alcohol with 26 carbon atoms, which gives it excellent surface activity and a broad range of compatibility with both polar and non-polar compounds. Its emulsifying properties allow it to stabilize oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions, while its solubilizing properties enable it to dissolve fat-soluble compounds in water-based systems. Dodecyltetradecanol's ability to thicken and stabilize food products makes it a popular choice in the food industry.
