So, what is sorbitan tetraoleate?

Sorbitan tetraoleate is a food ingredient that belongs to the category of emulsifiers. It is derived from sorbitol and oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid found in many plant and animal oils. Sorbitan tetraoleate is used to improve the texture and stability of many food products, such as baked goods, dairy products, and dressings. It can also be used as a dispersing agent, helping to evenly distribute ingredients in products like beverages and sauces. This ingredient is generally considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies and has a low risk of causing adverse health effects when used within recommended levels.
