Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9925207A1] Disclosed and claimed is the use of a sugar such as mono- and/or disaccharide in an aqueous solution as a vehicle for delivery of at least one emulsifier, as well as emulsifier delivery systems, emulsifier dispersions, products therefrom, and methods for making and using the delivery systems, dispersions and products. The emulsifier is hydrated and is in the form of alpha gel in the dispersion. The dispersion has shelf stability with respect to maintaining the alpha gel, as well as with respect to microbial activity and mold. Products from the dispersion exhibit improved shelf stability. Inventive dispersions can contain about 15 to about 40 weight % emulsifier, e.g., about 26 to about 30 weight % emulsifier, about 42 to about 65 weight % sugar, and about 10 to about 20 weight % water. The emulsifier can be a mono-diglyceride. The sugar can be dextrose or high fructose corn syrup.
