The effect of mineral oils as antifoaming agent
has been known for a long time .
Many volatiles and semivolatile compounds such as residual monomers, solvents, plasticizers, and low molecular weight additives such as mildewcides and antifoaming agents
can easily be analyzed by GC.

It's also an industrial solvent and an ingredient in adhesives, antifoaming agents
, plastics and lubricants.
Among the additives are sweeteners, food color and color retention agents, antifoaming agents
, glazing agents, and probiotic foods and dietary supplements.
The remaining components required to formulate these products are emulsifiers, pH stabilizers, rust preservatives, antifoaming agents
, corrosion inhibitors, lubricity aids, viscosity modifiers, biocides, and extreme pressure additives such as chlorine, sulfur, and phosphorus-based additives.
Amine Neutralizers, AntiFoaming Agents
, Anti-Microbial Agents.
Additives Offered: adhesion promoters, anti-blocking agents, antifoaming agents
, dispersing agents, flow control
The standard is tougher on additives however, saying only acidity regulators, antifoaming agents
, antioxidants, colours, emulsifiers, flavour enhancers, packing gases, preservatives, stabilisers and thickeners can be used, and then only in the detailed way described in the standard.
Polymeric surfactants such as polysiloxanes and polyether-modified siloxanes are found to function more efficiently than conventional mineral oil and hydrophobic particle-based antifoaming agents
