So, what is propilenglicol?

Propylene glycol is a synthetic organic compound commonly used in the food industry as a food additive. It is a colorless, odorless, and slightly viscous liquid that is commonly used as a humectant, which means it helps to retain moisture in food products. Propylene glycol is also used as a solvent and a preservative in various food products such as baked goods, beverages, and dairy products. It has a sweet taste and is generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies when used in small quantities. However, excessive consumption of propylene glycol can lead to adverse effects, so it is important to follow recommended guidelines when using this ingredient in food products.
