So, what is potassium myristate?

Potassium myristate is a white, crystalline substance that is derived from myristic acid, a naturally occurring fatty acid found in coconut oil and other plant sources. It is commonly used as an emulsifier, thickening agent, and stabilizer in various food and personal care products. Potassium myristate is soluble in water and has a mild, soapy odor. It is considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies and is often added to baked goods, dairy products, and sauces to improve their texture and consistency. Its unique properties make it a valuable ingredient in the food industry, helping to enhance the quality and appeal of a wide range of products.
