So, what is monostearynian sorbitolu?

Monostearynian sorbitolu is a food additive that is commonly used as an emulsifier, texture enhancer, and stabilizer in various food products. It is derived from sorbitol, a naturally occurring sugar alcohol, and stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid commonly found in animal and vegetable fats. Monostearynian sorbitolu helps to prevent the separation of ingredients, increase shelf life, and improve the overall texture of food products. It is often used in baked goods, dairy products, and processed foods, and is considered safe for consumption by regulatory authorities around the world.
