Monoglycerides > as emulsifiers for food

An emulsifier is a polar molecule with the structure of a “water loving” part and an “oil loving” part. Due to this structure, emulsifiers are capable of forming mono-molecular films between the water and the oil phase. This reduces the interfacial tension within the system. Emulsifiers are needed to mix at least 2 unmixable phases (e.g. oil and water) and stabilize that system.
