E487 — пищевая добавка, эмульгатор, загуститель: лаурилсульфат натрия, sodium laurylsulphate (Е487)

Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is an anionic surfactant (detergent) which is commercially synthesised from sulphuric acid as sulphuric acid monododecyl ester sodium salt, or naturally from coconut and/or palm oil kernels. It occurs as white or cream coloured crystals, flakes, powder, or as a clear to yellowish thick liquid, with a slight odour of fatty substances. One end of the molecule is charged and is extremely soluble is water, while the other end is non-polar and is soluble in fats. It is this property that makes it suitable for use as an emulsifier, and thickener in foods.
