Product Information:
Glyceryl Mono stearate : RXSOL-95-1257-025
Glyceryl Monostearate, is a fatty acid derived from vegetable oil, Soy Oil, or Palm Kernel Oil; however, it is also naturally occurring in the human body. This wax-like substance appears white or cream in color and is produced when Glycerin and Stearic Acid undergo esterification. Traditionally, it is used in formulations for its emulsifying properties. Glyceryl Stearate SE also contains Sodium Stearate and/or Potassium Stearate. The “SE” of Glyceryl Stearate SE stands for “Self-Emulsifying,” as it is a self-emulsifying form of Glyceryl Stearate.
Glyceryl monostearate (GMS) is an effective emulsifier used in the baking industry available in the form of small beads, flakes, or powders. In addition to emulsification, GMS is a thickening agent and a  stabilizer.
In baking, it is used to improve dough quality and stabilize fat/protein emulsions.


  • GMS is a non-ionic ester of glycerol and stearic acid. It is soluble in ethanol at 122°F (50°C) but immiscible with water. It often consists of a mixture of mono, di, and triesters of fatty acids occurring in food oils and fats. They may contain small amounts of free fatty acids and glycerol.

The ratio of hydrophilic to lipophilic moieties, called hydrophilic-lipophilic balance (HLB) is used in classifying emulsions. HLB values range from 0-20 with lower values indicating dominant lipophilic character while higher values indicate hydrophilic character. GMS has a HLB value of 3.8, making it lipophilic and suitable for uses in w/o emulsions, such as batters and doughs, dairy and other products.
GMS is used in a paste form, i.e. mixed with water and other ingredients to improve gel stability. It is an unsaturated monoglyceride and offers better stability than other unsaturated monoglycerides, such as oleic acid.
It is used in the baking industry to:

  • Help in the formation and maintenance of uniform dispersions of immiscible solvents.
  • Stabilize emulsions via displacing proteins from oil, wax or solvent surfaces.
  • Improve bread texture, and retard staling due to its complexation with starch amylopectin
  • Improve aeration of doughs and batters.

Product Application:

  • GMS has been used in the following applications:
  • To improve the physical and rheological properties of the batter and thus better-quality cakes
  • In breads such as pain courant Français, Friss búzakenyér, naan and roti
  • In sponge cakes and pancakes for aeration.
  • Dairy products such as cream, whipped cream, ice cream, cream powder, imitation creams, etc.
  • Fruit/vegetable spreads, jams, jellies, marmalades.
