HLB value
HLB(hydrophilic-lipophilic balance) value is a kind of index numbered from 1 to 20.

Sugar Esters are available with a wide range of HLB values controlled by the degree of esterification and the type of fatty acid used. Sugar Esters offer a much wider range of functional properties than other emulsifiers.
