How should I dissolve Sisterna sucrose ester powder?

High HLB sucrose esters (Sisterna PS750, SP70 and SP50) are soluble in water.
Medium HLB sucrose esters (Sisterna SP30) are partly soluble in water and partly in oil/fat.
Low HLB sucrose esters (Sisterna SP10 and SP01) are soluble in oil/fat.
The higher the HLB value, the better soluble in water. Sisterna SP70 and PS750 are well soluble in cold water, the latter forming a clear solution.

Can Sisterna sucrose esters help to stabilise my low viscous / liquid emulsions?

Yes, Sisterna sucrose esters ensure very small oil droplets, which give a stable emulsion. Increasing the viscosity of the water phase, to improve stability, becomes unnecessary.

Can I use sucrose esters in every product?

In Europe and the USA sucrose esters are allowed in most product groups, these groups and maximum dosages are laid down in the EU and FDA regulations. You can find the regulations on our website.
