GMS(Glycerol monostearate) is a food additive used as a thickening, emulsifying, anti-caking, and preservative agent; an emulsifying agent for oils, waxes, and solvents .GMS and CMC (Carboxy methyl cellulose) are compounds used for stabilizing ice creams and are available in specialty food stores or bakeries. G.M.S. Is a well known emulsifying agent which is extensively used by the modern food stuffs industries. GMS is largely used in baking preparations to add “body” to the food. It is responsible for giving ice cream and whipped cream its smooth texture. It contains both water & oil soluble groups in one molecule. This characteristic structure enables it to be a very effective emulsifier. Another important advantage to G.M.S. is high nutritive value. It is non toxic & therefore very suitable for use in food formulation. It belongs to the class of non ionic emulsifiers.
