So, what is pgpr?

PGPR, or Polyglycerol Polyricinoleate, is a synthetic emulsifier commonly used in the food industry. It is made from castor beans and polyglycerol, and is used to improve the texture and consistency of foods such as chocolate and peanut butter. PGPR helps to reduce the viscosity of chocolate, making it easier to mold and shape, and also helps to prevent the chocolate from separating. Additionally, PGPR can help to lower the amount of cocoa butter needed in chocolate production, making it a cost-effective ingredient. Despite concerns about its safety, PGPR is generally recognized as safe by regulatory bodies such as the FDA.
