So, what is polyriçinoléate de polyglycérol?

Polyricinoleate de polyglycérol, or PGPR, is a food-grade emulsifier commonly used in the production of chocolate and other confectionery products. It is derived from castor oil and consists of polymers of glycerol and ricinoleic acid. PGPR improves the flow properties of chocolate during production, prevents fat bloom, and reduces the viscosity of the final product. PGPR has been approved by regulatory agencies worldwide as a safe food ingredient and is widely used in the food industry to improve the quality and consistency of chocolate products.
