Esters of fruit acids including acetic acid and mono- and diacylglycerols (MAG and DAG), also known as E 472 emulsifiers, are used in the food industry as food additives to adjust techno-functional properties like viscosity, emulsion stability and foaming stability in various products, mainly dairy products. Based on the respective acids, E 472 emulsifiers are classified in several categories with acetic acid esters (ACETEM, E 472a), lactic acid esters (LACTEM, E 472b), citric acid esters (CITREM, E 472c), and mono- and diacetyl tartaric acid esters (DATEM, E 472e) as the most prominent representatives.
