E488 — пищевая добавка, эмульгатор: этоксилированные моно- и ди-глицериды, Ethoxylated Mono- and Di-Glicerides (Е488)

Ethoxylated mono- and di-glycerides (polyoxyethylene 20) and mono- and di- glycerides of fatty acids (polyglycerate 60) are anionic surfactants (detergents). A mono-glyceride is made of one fatty acid attached to glycerol, and a di-glyceride is made of two fatty acids attached to a glycerol molecule. One end of the molecule (glycerol) is very soluble is water, while the other end (the fatty acid) is soluble in fats. It is this property that makes them suitable for use as emulsifiers in foods. They also act as crumb softeners, and dough strengtheners to allow for higher rising.
