GLYCERINE (Glycerin) 6kg / 5 litres

IMPORTANT - the price of glycerine has gone up 10 fold in recent months, mainly due to China's massive demand for their bio-fuel industry.  We're trying to keep our prices as low as possible but it is becoming impossible to find stocks from any manufacturer or importer that are not at a much higher price. Sorry

  • top quality food grade vegetable Glycerine glycerol - 99.9% purest pharmaceutical grade
  • add to royal icing to avoid it from going too hard - just 1 teaspoon of glycerine added to 500g royal icing (at stiff peak stage) will prevent a very hard set
  • a great emulsifier that keeps sponge cakes moist for longer - add 1 teaspoon glycerine per 100g flour
  • add a small amount to bread recipes for a soft crumb texture - great for baps and buns
  • add to rich fruit cakes to ensure a rich, moist texture - some professionals even use to avoid adding alcohol
  • helps prevent sugar crystallisation in sweet and candy making 
  • extracted from coconut and palm oil - 100% natural
  • glycerol E422 is a defined as a carbohydrate alcohol but this is purely a chemical definition - it does not contain alcohol
  • suitable for vegetarians, vegans and all religious groups
  • an added benefit is that glycerine has lots of health and beauty benefits - it's an excellent natural skin moisturiser
  • BBE normally at least 3-4 months and often much longer
  • also used in soap making, skin care, bath salts and other cosmetics
  • BULK PRICES - we no longer offer Price Breaks for buying more than 1 of this item at a time, but we've reduced the price for buying just 1 and we do offer additional discounts for busier cake makers - find out more about becoming a Cake Stuff Trade Customer
