So, what is sodium cetyl sulfate?

Sodium cetyl sulfate is a surfactant commonly used in the food industry as an emulsifying and foaming agent. It is derived from cetyl alcohol, a fatty alcohol found in coconut oil and other vegetable oils. Sodium cetyl sulfate is a white, water-soluble powder that helps to stabilize mixtures of oil and water, allowing them to remain blended together. It is often used in the production of baked goods, dairy products, and sauces to improve texture and consistency. While it is generally considered safe for consumption, some individuals may be sensitive to its effects, and it should be used in moderation.
