Emulsifiers

Emulsifiers

Emulsifiers help to improve the freshness and overall quality of bakery and patisserie products. Essential for creating texture, they also bring robustness to the production process. Monoglycerides, Datem and SSL are the most commonly used emulsifiers.

  • Superior eating properties
  • Longer shelf-life

What’s special about Puratos emulsifiers?

The Puratos Multec Emulsifiers use high-quality vegetable oil, palm oil or rapeseed oil as their primary raw materials. Through our RSPO membership, we also ensure that our palm oil emulsifiers are sustainably sourced and produced, and through our engagement with RSPO initiatives we have achieved Mass Balance and Segregated certification. What’s more, for customers looking for 100% palm oil-free emulsifiers, we offer a full range derived entirely from rapeseed.
