So, what is palmitamine oxide?

Palmitamine oxide is a lesser-known food ingredient that belongs to the group of fatty acid amides. It is a pale-yellow, waxy solid that is insoluble in water and slightly soluble in organic solvents. Palmitamine oxide is mainly used as a food additive and a processing aid in the food industry, particularly in the manufacturing of baked goods, confectionery, and dairy products. It is known for its emulsifying properties and can help improve the texture, consistency, and shelf life of food products. Additionally, it has been found to have potential anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, although further research is needed to confirm these benefits.
