Glycerol monoesters are the reaction product of glycerin and fatty acids. Although the name suggests otherwise, glycerol monoesters are always mixtures of monoesters, diesters and triesters, with the concentration of monoesters dominating. Often used as emulsifiers, they are indispensable emulsifiers in many industries. Their natural properties and low toxicity make them favoured products in the production of cosmetics, food products and animal feeds.
