Raw glycerin is a triatomic alcohol obtained by hydrolysis or saponification of vegetable oils and (or) animal fats without the use of synthesis methods. The chemical name is propantriol-1,2,3. It is part of a group of stabilizers that preserve and increase the degree of consistency and viscosity of food products.
Raw glycerin is a by–product in the production of biodiesel. It is mainly used for the production of pure glycerin by distillation. In Europe, and more recently in Russia, it has been widely used as a food additive in cattle feed.
The basis of raw glycerin is vegetable raw materials: rapeseed oil in Europe, palm oil in South America. The content of the main substance (glycerin) in this product ranges from 75 to 85% and averages 80%.
It is capable of absorbing water from the atmosphere up to 40% of its own mass. It can be mixed with water, methanol, ethanol, acetone. It does not dissolve in fats, gasoline, benzene, as well as in chloroform and ether, except for their mixtures with ethanol. It is capable of dissolving many organic and inorganic substances, such as salts, alkalis, sugar.
