What is stearic acid?
Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid that's mainly in animal products. It's also in some plant foods like chocolate. Many studies show saturated fatty acids raise blood cholesterol. However, other studies show that some saturated fatty acids like stearic acid may not affect or may even lower total blood cholesterol. Scientists are eager to conduct further research.
