What is foodgrade alcohol?

Food grade alcohol is alcohol that is intended for human consumption. For that reason, it has to adhere to strict norms and regulations. Alcohol that is not meant for consumption is often denatured for tax reasons; therefore, food grade ethanol is also known as non-denatured alcohol. Food grade alcohol can be made from a variety of agricultural crops, from sugar beet and sugarcane to wheat. Nevertheless, alcohol for food is often referred to as grain alcohol. Taking all types of food grade alcohol into account, the common denominator is a high purity and the absence of any additives.

Uses of food grade ethanol

Food grade is mostly, but not exclusively, used to produce food and drinks. It serves as a base for distilled spirits like vodka, gin and liquors, as well as, amongst other things, a solvent for colourants and flavours in foods. Besides that, food grade alcohol is often used to produce non-food products that may come in contact with people, such as hand sanitisers, cleaning products and insecticides.
