Twinkie Resurrection: Day One, Serves One

According to Wired Magazine:

Polysorbates are made by polymerizing ethylene oxide (a precursor to antifreeze) with a sugar alcohol derivative. The result can be a detergent, an emulsifier, or, in the case of polysorbate 60, a major ingredient in some sexual lubricants.

This makes polysorbates the utility infielder who switch hits and can pitch an inning of relief of organic compounds.

I’ve now exhausted my sports metaphors for the week.
