So, what is poliglicerol de polirricinoleato?

Poliglicerol de polirricinoleato, commonly referred to as PGPR, is an emulsifier derived from castor oil. This food ingredient is a yellowish, viscous liquid that is used in the production of chocolate and other confectionery products to improve their texture and consistency. It works by reducing the viscosity of chocolate, making it easier to work with and giving it a smoother mouthfeel. PGPR has been approved for use in food by various regulatory agencies around the world, including the FDA in the United States and the EFSA in Europe. Despite its long name, PGPR is considered safe for consumption and is a common ingredient in many popular chocolate products.
