Sucrose esters of fatty acids, commonly known as sucrose esters, and sucrose oligo esters are a unique group of emulsifiers. Sucrose esters are 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 values ranging from 1 up to 16. Sucrose esters include sucrose esters of fatty acids (E473) and sucrose oligo esters. The classification depends on the ratio mono-, di-, and tri- esters. For each emulsifier a HLB-value can be calculated, a hydrophilic (water loving) emulsifier has a high HLB value, a lipophilic (oil loving) emulsifier has a low HLB value.
Sisterna B.V. is focused on the selling and promoting of sucrose esters. They are created by esterifying sucrose with methyl fatty acids. They are high grade emulsifiers with a wide HLB spectrum. They offer two different category types: Sucrose Esters and Sucrose Oligo Esters. The first is an oil-in-water emulsifier with protein and starch interaction functionalities while the other is a water-in-oil emulsifier with tabletting lubricant functionalities.
