Propylene glycol, approved as a food additive under E1520, is a clear, colorless and almost odorless liquid that belongs to the polyvalent alkanols. E1520 does not occur in natural form, but is produced synthetically from propylene oxide so that it can subsequently be sold by B2B wholesalers, suppliers and producers.
In food production, propylene glycol is a carrier in the manufacture of flavors, enzymes, antioxidants and chewing gums. In higher concentrations, it extends shelf life and thus helps to save preservatives. In the feed industry, propylene glycol is used as a feed additive in high-performance cattle to increase milk yield.
Propanediol is a humectant and plasticizer, which is why it is used as an antifreeze, brake fluid and solvent for paints. It is also a heat carrier in solar and refrigeration systems and is used in the manufacture of plastics. In the cosmetics industry, propylene glycol is added to hygiene products such as skin creams, toothpaste and deodorants to increase the absorption of active ingredients.
