Magnesium stearate, also called octadecanoic acid, magnesium salt, is a white substance which is solid at room temperature. Widely regarded as harmless, it is often used as a filling agent in the manufacture of medical pills as a binder. In this regard, the substance is also useful because it has lubricating properties, preventing ingredients from sticking to manufacturing equipment during the compression of chemical powders into solid pills.
Magnesium stearate is also used to bind sugar in hard candies for example mints.
