Glycerin from Fauth.

Glycerin is a polyalcohol, the simplest trihydric alcohol, stable under most conditions and very inert. Glycerol accumulates in the production of fatty acids by pressurised water hydrolysis or in the transesterification of fats. Therefore, today its most important source is the production of biodiesel (vegetable oil/fatty acid methyl ester). The recovery is almost always followed by a vacuum distillation. For raw glycerin, there are very few applications, trade is done practically only for qualities above 99.5%. Thanks to its special properties, its ease of processing and its good compatibility with many other substances, glycerine is widely used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic manufacturing, in the preparation of food and in the chemical-technical field. It is registered in the EU as a food additive under E 422 and in the US by the FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).

The versatile raw material is popular in the food industry due to its colourless and odourless, clear and water-soluble viscous liquid nature and also because of its sweetish taste and the fact that it does not crystallise like sugar. For example, baked goods remain edible for longer. Since glycerine binds water in a special way, it is hygroscopic, and therefore does not make it available to microorganisms, it has an antibacterial and fungicidal effect.
