Habo Sucrose Esters
Unique Emulsifiers Ranging from HLB 5 to HLB 15
Habo Sucrose Esters comprise a unique group of emulsifiers obtained by esterifying sucrose with methyl fatty acids. By varying the degree of esterification of the sucrose molecule, it is possible to obtain emulsifiers with HLB (Hydrophilic-Lipophilic Balance) values ranging from 5 up to 15.
HLB is a measure of the degree to which a surfactant is hydrophilic (water-loving) or lipophilic (fat-loving)
Emulsifiers with higher HLB are more water soluble than those with lower HLB. Compass Foods provides a wide range of sucrose esters with various HLB.
