Glycerin Monostearate

Item No: GMS

Glycerin Monostearate (GMS) is a food additive and emulsifier commonly used in the food industry. It is made by reacting glycerin (also known as glycerol) with stearic acid, which is a type of fatty acid typically derived from animal or vegetable sources. The result is a compound that has both hydrophilic (water-attracting) and hydrophobic (water-repelling) properties, making it an effective emulsifier and stabilizer in various food products.


·            Food Industry:

-      Emulsifier: GMS stabilizes emulsions in food products.

-      Thickening Agent: GMS increases viscosity in food formulations.

Anti-Caking Agent: GMS prevents clumping in powdered or granulated ingredients.

-      Stabilizer and Texturizer: GMS enhances stability and texture in food products.

-      Shelf-Life Extender: GMS extends the shelf life of food by inhibiting microbial growth.

·            Personal Care Products:

-      Emulsifier: GMS helps blend water and oil-based ingredients in personal care items.

-      Stabilizer: GMS improves stability and texture in personal care formulations.

-      Lubricant: GMS provides lubrication in certain personal care products.

·            Pharmaceuticals:

-  Emulsifier and Stabilizer: GMS improves emulsion stability and texture in medications.

-      Lubricant: GMS acts as a lubricating agent in pharmaceutical formulations.

-      Binder: GMS serves as a binder in some tablet formulations.

·            Plastics and Polymers:

-      Lubricant: GMS reduces friction and improves flow in plastic manufacturing.

-      Mold Release Agent: GMS aids in easy removal of plastic products from molds.

·            Textiles:

-      Softening Agent: GMS softens and lubricates fibers in textile production.

·            Paints and Coatings:

-      Dispersing Agent: GMS ensures uniform pigment distribution and stabilizes emulsions in paints.

·            Industrial Applications:

-      Emulsifier and Lubricant: GMS serves as an emulsifier and lubricant in various industrial processes.

GMS is a versatile emulsifier and additive used in various industries for its stabilizing, thickening, and lubricating properties.
