So, what is hydrogenated tallow amide?

Hydrogenated tallow amide is a food ingredient derived from hydrogenated animal fats, commonly used as an emulsifier in the food industry. It acts as a stabilizing agent, preventing ingredients from separating and maintaining a uniform texture. Additionally, it can enhance the shelf life of certain products. Despite being derived from animal sources, it is considered a vegan-friendly ingredient due to the chemical processing involved. It is commonly found in processed foods such as baked goods, snacks, and dairy products. However, there have been some concerns about its potential health risks, including increasing cholesterol levels and contributing to cardiovascular disease.
