Glycerol Distearate Properties

Glycerol Distearate



Glycerol distearate is a mixture of diacylglycerols, mainly distearoylglycerol, together with variable quantities of mono- and triacylglycerols. It contains 8.0 per cent to 22.0 per cent of monoacylglycerols, 40.0 per cent to 60.0 per cent of diacylglycerols and 25.0 per cent to 35.0 per cent of triacylglycerols, obtained by partial glycerolysis of vegetable oils containing triacylglycerols of palmitic or stearic acid or by esterification of glycerol with stearic acid 50 (type I), stearic acid 70 (type II) or stearic acid 95 (type III) . The fatty acids may be of vegetable or animal origin.
