Magnesium stearate is a white substance, solid at room temperature. Stearic acid is the most common of the long-chained fatty acids. It is found in many foods including vegetable and animal oils, beef fat, and cocoa butter. Direct exposure to magnesium stearate, as in a laboratory, can lead to poisoning requiring first aid. Vomiting is a sign of poisoning from ingestion of magnesium stearate.
