Ethanol is also called alcohol, ethyl alcohol and grain alcohol which is a clear, colorless liquid and can be used as the principle ingredient in extraction process. As it can readily dissolve in water and other organic compounds, ethanol also is an ingredient in a range of products from personal care and beauty products as well as food ingredients too.
As a food additive, ethanol helps to evenly distribute food coloring as well as to enhance the flavor of food extracts and such other products also. FDA has labeled ethanol as a Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) substance, which means that a panel of qualified experts determined that ethanol is safe to use in food products. Because ethanol is a very pure form of alcohol, its consumption and use in foods is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. And so by using this as primary solvent for extraction, we can get purest, most safe and healthy extracts for fulfilling our ingredients need.
