Glycerine

In food and beverages, glycerine serves as a humectant, solvent, and sweetener, and may help preserve foods. It is also used as a filler in commercially prepared low-fat foods (e.g. cookies), and as a thickening agent in liqueurs. 

Glycerol has a caloric density which is similar, to table sugar, and a lower glycemic index and different metabolic pathway within the body, so some dietary advocates accept glycerol as a sweetener compatible with low-carbohydrate diets.

Glycerine along with Mono Propylene Glycol, is a common component of e-liquid, a solution used with electronic vaporizers (electronic cigarettes). 

Blends supply glycerine of high quality for the food, beverage, vape and pharmaceutical industries. We work with glycerine 100% rapeseed, mixed vegetable and RSPO MB. We can supply in jerry cans of varying sizes; 1Kg, 6kg, 25Kg, 250Kg drums through to part filled and full IBCs (1250kg). Supply of bulk material is also available on request.

 

Ingredients for your Business

 

Mono Propylene Glycol (MPG)

Mono Propylene Glycol is used in food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. In the food industry, it is used for food colouring and flavouring, and as a humectant food additive, it is also used in Pet Food/Animal Feed. In the pharmaceutical industry, it is used as an excipient, and as a solvent. Owing to its properties it is used as an ingredient in a wide range of applications. 

Mono Propylene Glycol alongside Glycerine, is a common component of E-liquid, a solution used with electronic vaporizers (electronic cigarettes). 

Blends offer industrial MPG grades for use in technical applications. Blends also offer speciality MPG grades for use in sensitive applications such as pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs or animal feed.

 

MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides)

Medium-chain triglycerides have played a role in the food and beverage industry for several years, but their use has skyrocketed in the last decade as more consumers are seeking whole foods and healthy fats for nutrition and weight loss. An emphasis on low-carb diets and macronutrients has also driven the growth of medium-chain triglycerides in the food industry. Medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs, are metabolized more quickly than other fatty acids to provide energy without being stored as fat. 

MCTs also provide many other health benefits that position them as a popular dietary supplement whose use is likely to continue to grow in the future. They are a component of many foods, with coconut and palm oils being the dietary sources with the highest concentration of MCTs.
