Antifoams are also known as "defoamers." These additives serve businesses across a number of industries by helping to maintain foam formation or stopping bubbles from occurring in production operations. The ingredients are insoluble in foaming mediums and spread rapidly across surfaces due to their low viscosity.
The need for antifoams becomes apparent when foam disturbs processing, filling or volume measurements or when the texture of the food product is negatively affected. The first solution to prevent foam is control of the processing but in some cases food manufacturers cannot do this without the addition of antifoam.
