So, what is de glycérol?

Glycerol, also known as glycerin, is a colorless, odorless, and viscous liquid commonly used as a food ingredient. It has a sweet taste and is often used as a humectant, which means it helps retain moisture in food products. Glycerol is also used as a solvent and a thickening agent, and it can help prevent crystallization in foods like candy and ice cream. It is derived from vegetable oils or animal fats, and it is considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies around the world. In addition to its food applications, glycerol is used in a variety of other industries, including cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and explosives.
