So, what is tristéarate de sorbitane?

Tristearate de sorbitane is a food ingredient commonly used as an emulsifier, stabilizer, and thickener in various food products. It is made by esterifying sorbitan with stearic acid, a type of saturated fatty acid found in many natural fats and oils. Tristearate de sorbitane is particularly effective at preventing oil and water from separating in processed foods, and is often used in products like chocolate, margarine, and salad dressings. Despite its role in many processed foods, tristearate de sorbitane is generally considered safe for consumption and is approved for use by regulatory agencies around the world.
