Polysorbate 80 liquid, (a viscous, water-soluble yellow liquid), is used as an emulsifier in food manufacture including ice cream. It makes the ice cream smoother and increases the resistance to melting. By adding polysorbate 80 it prevents milk proteins from completely coating the fat droplets in ice cream. By doing this it allows them to join together and capture air in the mixture. This provides a firmer texture.
Our pharma grade product can also used in the manufacture of lotions, skin creams and hair care products. When used it delivers a medium, fine textured result. It can also be used as a spreading aid for bath oils, adding water dispersibility to anhydrous systems and a stabiliser for oils and fragrances.
