So, what is hydrogenated tallow glyceride?

Hydrogenated tallow glyceride is a food ingredient commonly used as an emulsifier and stabilizer in many processed foods. It is derived from the fatty tissue of beef or sheep and is chemically modified through hydrogenation, which involves the addition of hydrogen to create a more solid and stable form. This process also increases its melting point, making it ideal for use in baked goods and confectionery products. Hydrogenated tallow glyceride is often listed on ingredient labels under its E number, E471, and is considered safe for consumption in small amounts.
