The antistaling agent are generally monoglycerides, diglycerides, wheat gluten, glycerolipids, enzymes, and wheat gluten.
Since when do they even single-churn mixtures of water, sugar, oil, casein, natural and artificial flavor, monoand diglycerides, dipotassium phosphate, salt, cellulose gel, cellulose gum, and carrageenan?
This hydrolysis causes the release of free fatty acids and mono- and diglycerides, which are compounds that have structures with polar and nonpolar groups on the same molecule and consequently can reduce surface tension and act as emulsifiers (Colla et al.
Double chocolate cake (Bauducco), for instance, contained three preservatives (sorbic acid, calcium proprionate, and potassium sorbate), four emulsifiers (lecithin, mono and diglycerides of fatty acids, polyglycerol polyricinoleates and glyceryl monostearate), four raising agents (sodium bicarbonate, sodium acid pyrophosphate, monocalcium phosphate and calcium carbonate), gelling agent (pectin), humectants (glycerin and sorbitol), acid (citric acid) and flavor.
But this is the list of ingredients for a McDonald's McFlurry: Milk, liquid sucrose (sugar, water), cream, nonfat milk solids, corn syrup solids, mono- and diglycerides, guar gum, dextrose, sodium citrate, artificial vanilla flavour, sodium phosphate, carrageenan, disodium phosphate, cellulose gum, vitamin A palmitate.

Nevertheless, diglycerides still persist in ethylic biodiesel samples, which can affect the oxidative stability [29].
Even though, this study did not determine the fatty acid content, it can be replaced by crude fat, as it is also known as the ether extract or the free lipid content, the lipid materials may include triglycerides, diglycerides, monoglycerides, phospholipids, steroids, and free fatty acids (Association of American Feed Control Officials [AAFCO], 2014).
Transesterification reaction is a combination of three sequential catalyzed reactions (1)-(3) in which triglycerides (TG) of a VO were transformed to diglycerides (DG) and monoglyceride (MG) and finally as glycerol and methyl ester (ME) known as biodiesel [5].
