Definitions for "Emulsifying agent"
Keywords:  dispersed, soap, mix, collo, sustance

Water normally occurs separately from oil; if, however, an emulsifying agent is present, the water becomes dispersed in the oil as tiny droplets. Or, rarely, the oil may be dispersed in the water. In either case, the emulsion must be treated to separate the water and the oil.
