E473 — пищевая добавка, эмульгатор: эфиры сахарозы и жирных кислот, sucrose esters of fatty acids (Е473)

Esters of sugar and synthetic fats, produced from glycerol and natural fatty acids. The fatty acids are mainly from plant origin, but also fats of animal origin may be used. The product generally is a mixture of different components, with a composition similar to partially digested natural fat esterified with sugar. Emulsifier and modifying agent. The products are first digested to sugar and fats. The body metabolises all components identical to sugar and natural fat. The individual components of the mono- and diglycerides are also produced normally in the body when digesting normal fat. May cause stomach pain, nausea, bloating, diarrhoea. May contain residues of solvents used in making. Although mainly vegetable oils are used, the use of animal fat (incl. pork) can not be excluded. Several groups, such as vegans, Muslims and Jews thus avoid these products. Only the producer can give detailed information on the origin of the fatty acids. Chemically the fatty acids from vegetable or animal origin are identical.

Sucrose fatty acid esters are the mono, di and triesters of sucrose with edible fatty acids. The fatty acids are mainly derived from plants, but can also be animal fats. The product is usually a mixtures of different components that has been produced in the presence of some sort of solvent. Sucrose esters of fatty acids are used as emulsifiers, and stabilisers in foods.
