Sucro is an emulsifier derived from sacarose, obtained from reaction between sacarose and fatty acids (sucroester). This product is widely used in Japan. Due to its high stability as an emulsifier sucro is used to prepare oil in water type emulsions. It is a product similar to water, and so it must first be dissolved in that medium. It also has aerating properties.
Sucro forms part of the Texturas Emulsification range by Albert y Ferran Adria. You can read more on his website to see uses and preparations.
