So, what is ethyl acetate?

Ethyl acetate is a colorless liquid with a fruity, sweet aroma. It is a common solvent used in various industries, including food, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. Ethyl acetate is produced through the reaction of ethanol and acetic acid, and it can also be found naturally in fruits like apples and bananas. In the food industry, ethyl acetate is used as a flavor enhancer and as a solvent to extract essential oils from natural sources. It is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA and is commonly used in the production of wines, spirits, and fruit juices.
