Properties & Applications & PackagesInquiry
Glyceryl monostearate is generally oily, greasy or waxy, with light yellow or ivory color, greasy or tasteless taste, which is related to the size and saturation of the fat group, and has excellent sensory properties. In addition, glyceryl monostearate is a polyol-type nonionic surfactant. Because its structure has a lipophilic long-chain alkyl group and two hydrophilic hydroxyl groups, it has good surface activity and can It has the functions of emulsification, foaming, dispersion, defoaming, and anti-starch aging.

It is the most widely used emulsifier in food and cosmetics. In addition, it also has important uses in the pharmaceutical industry. For example, polyunsaturated fatty acid (EPA, DHA) glycerides can prevent cardiovascular diseases. In the field of polymer synthesis, glyceryl monostearate is also widely used.

Glyceryl monostearate is a common emulsifier widely used in food, medicine, cosmetics, and detergent industries. Due to the interaction between monoglyceride and oil, it can promote the formation of its crystal form, improve the ductility, esterification and water absorption of plastic oil, and prevent splashing during heating. It has been used in margarine and shortening. , mayonnaise, seasonings and other special oils and fats production. The interaction between glyceryl monostearate and gluten protein can form a symmetrical complex of protein-lipid-protein and starch-lipid-protein, thereby enhancing the gluten quality.

At the same time, it is also the parent body of a series of emulsifiers such as lactic acid monoglyceride, citric acid monoglyceride, lipic acid monoglyceride, diacetyl tartaric acid monoglyceride, etc.; the addition of monoglyceride can improve the flavor and functionality of food. It also has many other application capabilities. Monoglycerides are used as internal lubricants in polyethylene processing, which can promote smooth gelation and improve fluidity. Monoglycerides are used as antistatic agents in polyolefins, which can leak static electricity from the plastic surface, avoid electric shock hazards on the product, prevent the surface of the product from absorbing dust and becoming dirty, and at the same time reduce surface friction and electrification.

Monoglycerides are used as anti-fogging agents in plastics, which can eliminate fogging effects on agricultural films that affect sunlight transmittance and cause poor crop growth caused by dripping water. It can also eliminate fogging and blurring in food packaging films, improving the efficiency of fogging. The aesthetics and merchandise value of the contents.
