Next to our mono- & di-glycerides and esterified monoglycerides, we are also offering BASF’s special emulsifiers as e.g. propylene glycol (E 1520), sodiumstearoyl-2-laytylate (E 481) and others. Because of their structure, having a “water loving” part on one and an “oil loving” part on the other side, emulsifiers reduce the interfacial tension within oil in water (O/W) or water in oil (W/O) systems. They therewith mix these usually unmixable phases and stabilize the system. They are used as bread improver, lubricants, for food coating systems and many other applications.
Our special emulsifiers are available as powders and liquids.
Servil®, a wax ester of vegetable oils, is e.g. an excellent release agent.
The above mentioned brands comply with the current specifications established by the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) and the current EU Regulation laying down specifications for food additives.
The products must be kept only in the original container and in a cool place. Detailed storage conditions can be found in the technical information. Unopened, the products are stable at least 12-24 months (type dependent).
The core range of miscellaneous emulsifiers is designed for cake gels in combination with monoglycerides and stearate to create a cake gel with high aeration performance. Furthermore, these products are applicable as released agents, as lubricant (e.g. in the liver sausage production) and in ice cream to improve the overrun. These emulsifiers are designed for soft cakes and lead there to unique crumb structure. They can be applied as well in dairy applications, oil processing and as coating in confectionary.
