Sorbitan monolaurate is a polysorbate that is derived from the mixture of partial esters of sorbitol, and it mono- and dianhydrides with lauric acid - a normal fatty acid derived from plant or animal origin. This produces an amber-coloured, oily viscous liquid, or a hard waxy solid with a slight odour, or light cream to tan beads or flakes. All the products are dispersible in water, and used as an emulsifier and stabiliser in foods.
