Magnesium Stearate — The Ingredient You Need

Let’s talk about magnesium stearate. This ingredient is one of Viachem’s highest selling products, and for good reason. Widely used in the Personal Care, Food and Beverage, Nutraceutical and Pharmaceutical industries, our clean label magnesium stearate works as an emulsifier, thickener, binder, lubricant and antifoaming agent. 

Magnesium stearate is the magnesium salt of stearic acid, a fatty acid. This ingredient comes in a fine, white powder, is non-toxic and is widely used in the food industry as an additive for herbs, spices, chewing gum, confectionery, dietary supplements, tablets, capsules and other powders found in food products. Additionally, it’s commonly used in the Nutraceutical and Pharmaceutical industries as a filler in capsules.
