according to usp it is not food safe "USP Reference Standards are intended for Test and Assay use only, they are not intended for administration to humans or animals as drugs or medical devices." yet im confused since there is USP glycerin that is intended to be taken orally

the stuff worked but i will keep it for other things and just order some vegi glycerin that is marked to be eaten, im surprised how hard it is to find it here... then again i remember people said they got some from whole foods and i havent gone down there for a while, guess i will friday

nothing i know of, i think whole foods should be a good hit though and i gota grab some baked goods (they have a decent selection of gluten free stuff since i cant eat any normal breads or what not with wheat/rye/barley in them)

I have been using the same kind of glycerin from the local drug store, and have had no problems with it so far.

It might be working now,but over time you might be creating irreversable damage to your lungs. Yes I am trying to scare you, if your bottle of glycerine says topical, don't put it in your mouth,it should only go as far as your skin.

According to that the USP kind can also be used in foods.

idk USP said their ratings are not food safe when i contacted them but food safe probably meets and exceeds those ratings. i honestly doubt there is much different in them, probably honestly the food safe stuff is just more sterile in processing or something because everywhere i see both cosmetic and food grade just have water as the other .2-.5%

its not like when you have industrial ethanol where they add stuff so it makes it so you cannot drink it... unless you buy the uber pure lab stuff but that is still like 95% cause you just cannot get over that easily with ethanol and store it

hence why i am asking for the exact chemical/ medical name listed on the bottles that people have, i could care less where it comes from as long as it is the same in the end

But if it's gelatin from a piggly wiggly's boiled bones, it's not Kosher, Mate!Which is why I get vegetable based.The pig stuff is used to make soap anyhoo!

i ended up getting some vegi glycerin, personally i wouldnt care about it if it was from an animal or vegis as long as its the same thing in the end which AFAIK like gelatin it is. but no worries now
