So, what is undecylenic acid?

Undecylenic acid is a naturally occurring fatty acid found in castor oil and other natural sources. It is commonly used in the food industry as a preservative due to its antifungal and antimicrobial properties. Undecylenic acid has been shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria, yeast, and fungi, making it an effective ingredient in many food products, including baked goods and dairy products. In addition to its use as a preservative, undecylenic acid has also been studied for its potential health benefits, such as reducing inflammation and improving skin health when applied topically.
