Application in Food

  • Vegetable Oils and Frying Margarine

    Acts as an anti-spattering agent by reducing surface tension between oil and water and allowing water to be finely dispersed and not agglomerating in large particles.

    Ideal for use in brick and liquid frying margarine

  • Chocolates

    Substitute for Soy Lecithin: reduces plastic viscosity in the conch.
