Stearic Acid Definition
What Is Stearic Acid?

Any number of saturated aliphatic monocarboxylic acids. A metabolic byproduct from the breakdown of fats. Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid that occurs in many animal and vegetable fats and oils. It is also present in some plant foods like chocolate. It's very stable in storage and during frying. A relatively large percentage of stearic acid consumed is converted to oleic acid (a monounsaturated fat). Stearic acid is used to form margarines, shortenings, spreads, and as a cream base for baked products. It has little effect on blood cholesterol levels, because such a high proportion is converted to oleic acid. The salts and esters of stearic acid are called stearates.
