So, what is magnesiumstearaat?

Magnesiumstearaat is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder commonly used as an anti-caking agent and lubricant in the food industry. It is derived from magnesium, a vital mineral required for various biological functions in the body, and stearic acid, a fatty acid found in animal and vegetable fats. Magnesiumstearaat is widely used in the production of processed foods, supplements, and pharmaceuticals, where it plays a crucial role in preventing ingredients from clumping together and improving their flowability. This ingredient is generally considered safe for consumption in small amounts, and it does not have any significant impact on the nutritional value or flavor of the final product.
