Introduction distilled monoglycerides(DMG)

- Aug 02, 2018-

 Distilled monoglyceride(DMG) is the most widely used food additive and is safely used in the production and processing of food, medicine, plastics, etc.

 Glycerol monostearate (GMS), which is produced by using natural vegetable oils and fats, is abbreviated as monoglyceride or GMS. It is more than 90% purified by molecular distillation technology. It is also called distilled monoglyceride(DMG). Accounting for more than half of the market emulsifier dosage.

 In the distilled monoglyceride, the content of glyceryl monostearate with emulsification is higher, and the impurities for reducing efficiency are eliminated, so the emulsifying ability is 3-4 times higher than that of the crude ester, and the addition of 0.05 to 2% can generally be achieved. The processing of food and other products requires white color, odorless and stable performance.

Application field editing

With the increasing demand for green, environmental protection, sanitation and safety, molecular distillation monoglycerides, derived from natural raw materials, have safe, effective and stable food additives that are more and more widely used in people's lives. field. such as:

1. Food field: cake oil, cream, coffee mate, cold food, liquid solid beverage, dairy, milk sugar, sugar, fruit candy, chocolate, bread, biscuits, peanuts/walnuts/beans/sesame/coconut sauce (milk), Sausage, ham, rice noodles, noodles, starch, spicy food, etc.

2. Cosmetics: emollients, creams, hair creams, shampoos, etc., used as emulsifiers and thickeners.

3. Medical field: ointment, nutrient solution, etc.

4. Plastic additives: pearl cotton packaging, food packaging film, fruit nets, PVC stabilizers, sanitary materials, etc.

5. Agricultural field: In the production of agricultural greenhouse film, monoglyceride is the main raw material of dripping agent. Monoglyceride can be used as a plasticizer for nitrocellulose, a modifier for alkyd resins, a latex dispersion, and a compounding agent for synthetic paraffin.

Application range


Recommended dosage

Protein drink

Improves the stability of fats and proteins to prevent delamination and sedimentation

0.05-0.1% of the total material

ice cream

Prevents the formation of coarse ice crystals, increases fine and smooth taste, improves shape retention and stability

0.1-0.2% of the total material

Pasta products


Improve internal structure, delay hardening, and extend shelf life

0.3-0.8% of flour


Increase volume, improve texture, and extend shelf life

3-10% of fats and oils


Improves handling performance, increases crispiness of biscuits, prevents grease from oozing out, and makes dough easy to release

1.5-2% of fats and oils

Instant noodles

Improve handling performance, reduce oil absorption and reduce cooking loss

0.1-0.2% of flour

Grease product


Adjust oil crystals, enhance the stability of water-in-oil system, and prevent oil-water separation

Adjust for different purposes


Adjust oil crystals and improve the blending and whipping properties of shortening and other ingredients

Adjust for different purposes

Candy, chocolate

Make the oil easy to disperse, reduce the viscosity of the slurry and the crystallinity of the sugar, and improve the quality of the product.

1.5-2% of fats and oils

Meat products

Makes the oil easy to disperse and firmly binds with water and starch, while preventing starch from regenerating and improving the taste

0.1-1.0% of the total material

Plastic industry

Foaming auxiliaries, lubricants, antistatic agents, anti-fog drops

Adjust for different purposes

Edit by method

Dosage: 0.1%-0.5% (according to the weight of the product formula), if the product contains more fats, proteins, etc., or contains non-emulsifiable raw materials, the amount of molecularly distilled monoglyceride should be increased to 1%-5%.

1. Using the self-emulsifying characteristics of molecular distillation monoglyceride, adding a monoester to 10-20 parts of water, heating to 60-75 ° C, stirring and dissolving to make hydrated glyceride, HLB value increased to 9-10, The hydrophilicity is increased, and after cooling, it is a stable and uniform emulsion, which is put into the raw material for other process operations. It is recommended to choose this method to best exert the efficacy of molecular distillation monoglyceride.

Suitable for cold foods, liquid beverages, solid beverages, cake oils, taro, noodles, instant noodles, sausages and other products with low oil content.

2. Because it is a derivative of oil and fat, it is completely compatible with oil and fat, and is easily soluble in oil. The distilled monoglyceride is heated together with oil (or liquid at ≥65 ° C) and then mixed with water.

It is suitable for the production of cake oil, shortening, biscuits, cakes, pastry, ham sausage, canned meat products and other oily products.

3. Mix it with other raw material powders and dissolve at 60-75 ° C water temperature.

Suitable for the production of pastry powder, dumpling powder, starch or bread, flour improver and other products

Fourth, packaging and storage

Packing specification: composite kraft paper bag, lined with food grade plastic bag, generally 25kg/bag, 20kg or 15kg/bag for fine powder.

Storage and transportation conditions:

The shelf life is two years, stored in a dry and cool environment, and stored and transported according to the general flame retardant waxy solid.
