So, what is álcool etílico?

Álcool etílico, also known as ethanol or ethyl alcohol, is a colorless and flammable liquid that is commonly used in the food industry as a solvent, preservative, and flavoring agent. It is produced through the fermentation of sugars or the hydration of ethylene. With its mild, slightly sweet taste and high volatility, álcool etílico is a popular ingredient in a wide range of food and beverage products, including alcoholic beverages, baked goods, confectionery, and sauces. Its ability to dissolve both water-soluble and fat-soluble substances makes it a versatile ingredient in many formulations. However, álcool etílico should be used in moderation and with caution due to its potential health risks when consumed in excessive amounts.
