Good evening to everyone.

I have a question. In our permisses we make a blend of sorbitol syrup and glycerine/glycerol (as a humectant) and we sell it to food producers. Regarding Glycerine can we use Ph.Eu. instead of FoodGrade (E422).? There are purity criteria and the producer of Ph.Eu can send us a statment that the product confoms to the standart of  E422.

JFI (I assume) -

 

The European Pharmacopoeia = Pharmacopoeia Europaea=  Ph. Eur.

Hi,
You have to fulfill all parameters for food grade. PhEur does not contain all these parameters. If you supplier is able to state that ok. He will become a part of the food chain with all legal responsibilities.
Check the concentration of glycerol- in pharmaceutical it is in the most cases 80% and does not fit into the requirements of E422.
