Glycerin Flakes

Glycerin flakes are commonly used to stabilize emulsions and to thicken or foam oils. Unlike many ingredients, they have to be dissolved in oil, not in water. They are high stability emulsifiers composed of monoglyceride and diglyceride taken from the fats of glycerin and fatty acids. Despite commonly being called "glycerin flakes", they do not actually contain any glycerin and the more accurate name for them is "mono and diglycerides".
