So, what is isostearate?

Isostearate is a versatile food ingredient that is derived from isostearic acid, which is found naturally in some vegetable oils. It is commonly used as an emulsifier, thickener, and stabilizer in many food products, including baked goods, sauces, dressings, and confectionery. Isostearate can improve texture, prevent separation of ingredients, and extend the shelf life of food products. It is considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies, and its unique chemical properties make it a valuable ingredient in the food industry. Isostearate is an excellent choice for food manufacturers looking to improve the quality and consistency of their products while maintaining consumer safety and satisfaction.
