Emulsifiers are commonly added to processed foods such as mayonnaise, ice cream, sauces, margarine, and baked goods to create a smooth texture, prevent separation, and extend shelf life. They work by linking oil-based substances with those that are water-based to maintain a smooth, balanced, and blended texture. In a product such as ice cream, they help to enhance the smooth and creamy texture and slow down the melting process. Likewise, thickeners such as pectins, starches, collagen, fats, and vegetable gums are added to improve texture and viscosity of products such as sauces, fillings, gravies, jams, and jellies.
