Food Emulsifier

Emulsifiers are among the most frequently used types of food additives. They are used for many reasons.

Emulsifiers can help to make a food appealing. Industrial mayonnaise without the emulsifier is unappealing and would have oil and water separated before use. Emulsifiers have a big effect on the structure and texture of many foods. They are used to aid in the processing of foods and also to help maintain appearance of quality and freshness. In low fat spreads, emulsifiers can help to prevent the growth of moulds which would happen if the oil and fat separated.
