So, what is polyvinyl acetate?

Polyvinyl acetate is a synthetic polymer that is commonly used in the food industry as an adhesive agent, thickener, and stabilizer. It is a non-toxic, water-soluble compound that is made from vinyl acetate monomers through polymerization. Polyvinyl acetate is often used to glue together various food products such as candy, gum, and baked goods. Additionally, it can be found in products such as yogurt, cheese, and ice cream where it helps improve texture and prevent separation. Overall, polyvinyl acetate is an essential ingredient in many processed foods, allowing for improved shelf life and stable consistency.
