So, what is tryhydroxy stearin?

Triglycerides are a type of fat commonly found in many foods. Tryhydroxy stearin, also known as THS, is a form of triglyceride that is used as an emulsifier, stabilizer, and thickener in many food products. It is derived from stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid that is abundant in animal and vegetable fats. THS is often used in the production of margarine, shortening, and other baked goods to improve texture and extend shelf life. Despite being a fat, THS is considered safe for consumption in moderate amounts and is widely used in the food industry.
