So, what is isopropyl?

Isopropyl is a common chemical compound with the molecular formula C3H8O. It is a colorless and flammable liquid that is commonly used as a solvent and disinfectant.

In the food industry, isopropyl is used as a solvent for flavorings, extracts, and other food additives. It is also used in the production of natural and synthetic flavors, such as vanilla and raspberry. However, it should be noted that isopropyl is not safe for consumption in large quantities and should only be used in small amounts for food processing purposes.
