So, what is polyglycerolestere af fedtsyrer?

Polyglycerol esters of fatty acids, also known as PGEs, are a type of emulsifier used in food products to improve texture and stability. They are created by combining glycerol molecules with fatty acids through esterification. The resulting mixture can have a wide range of properties, depending on the specific combination of glycerol and fatty acids used. PGEs are commonly found in baked goods, margarine, and other processed foods, where they help to create a smooth, homogeneous texture and prevent separation of ingredients. They are also used in some cosmetic and personal care products as emulsifying agents.
