Vegetable Glycerine

Starwest’s premium quality Vegetable Glycerine is an amazing product whose unusual combination of properties has made it useful in a wide variety of applications. It is a clear, colorless, and odorless liquid with a very sweet taste, with the consistency of a thick syrup.

  • Certified Kosher
  • Vegan/Vegetarian
Food & Beverages
Vegetable Glycerine is commonly used in food and beverages, is low in calories and easily digested.

  • The warm, sweet taste makes it an excellent substitute for sugar, and is used extensively in the preparation of coffee and tea flavors, and as an ingredient in soft drinks.
  • It has many uses due to its malleability, and can be used in baked goods including cakes, cookies, candy, and fudge. You can add it to your cake batter to retain moistness for longer after it is baked. Its easy texture and sweet taste add a special touch without changing the taste of your baked goods. It can also help prevent sugar crystallization in candy.
  • Bakers often use it when making homemade icing. It helps in thinning the icing and it can also be used to soften fondant, thus making it easier to work with.
  • Its unique anti-fermentative properties also make it very useful in the production and preservation of herbal extracts and tinctures. It’s a good choice for people who are sensitive to alcohol, as most liquid herbal extracts do contain alcohol.

Body & Skin Care
Vegetable glycerine is also widely used as a humectant, a penetrant, and a softening agent in skin care products and soaps. The emollient and lubricating properties of glycerine make it effective anytime there is hardness, drying, or scaling of the skin. It is water and alcohol soluble, making it easy to work with.

  • As an effective ingredient in massage preparations, glycerine provides a soothing effect, making the skin supple and offering a protective action.
  • It is commonly used in beauty products including makeup, mousse, shampoo, bubble bath, after shave, and deodorant.
  • It is also used in some eye and ear drops, toothpastes, and dental care products.

Production Process

Our organic and conventional vegetable glycerine are both derived using the process of hydrolysis, which takes off the fatty acids, leaving pure vegetable glycerine.

  • Our conventional vegetable glycerine is from Malaysia, and is derived from sustainable, non-gmo vegetable palm oil and is produced using environmentally friendly practices.
  • Our organic vegetable glycerine is from India, and is derived from organic vegetable soybean oil using environmentally friendly practices. Only non-gmo seeds are used. (Note: No soy proteins remain in the final product, therefore no allergen is present.)

Storage & Preserving Vegetable Glycerine

Vegetable Glycerine should be stored in a cool, dry place, and avoid any direct exposure to heat and light. Minimum of 3 year shelf life when stored properly.

Ingredients: 100% pure vegetable glycerine USP. Warm sweet taste, ideal for food use.

Packaging: Our 4 fl oz and 16 fl oz Vegetable Glycerine is packaged in a clear plastic bottle with a smooth plastic disc cap and a hand press flip closure. The convenient hand flip closure helps ensure that you will dispense just the right amount of your product. Our 1 gallon size is packaged in a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) jug, with a tight-fitting plastic lid to help protect contents from moisture and air, and the 5 gallon size is packaged in a cube container with a spigot and handle.

Directions: When used topically, dilute first for best results.

Questions & Answers for Vegetable Glycerine

is this vegetable glycerine from palm or coconut. Thank you
Question by: Dee on June 30, 2014
Starwest Vegetable Glycerine is derived from sustainable, GMO free, palm oil by the process of hydrolysis. Our organic vegetable glycerine is derived from GMO free soy (where in the process of creating vegetable glycerine, it eliminates the proteins that are responsible for allergies to soy products).
