Eastman™ Triacetin, Food Grade

Triacetin. Eastman™ Triacetin, Food Grade is a glyceryl triacetate, supplied by Eastman Chemical Company. Acts as a plasticizer. It is a clear liquid, free of suspended matter with a slight odor. Its high solvency power and low volatility makes it a good solvent and fixative for many flavors and fragrances. Used in chewing gum and other food contact related plastic compound. Eastman™ Triacetin, Food Grade meets all Food Chemicals Codex (FCC) specifications and is manufactured under good manufacturing practices (GMP). It is compliant with FDA and mentioned as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use in human food. Also listed in TSCA, DSL, AICS / NICNAS, MITI, ECL and IECSC inventory bodies.

Hansen Solubility Parameters

[16.8, 5.8, 8.7]
[δD - Dispersion force interactions, δP - Polar force interactions, δH - Hydrogen bond force interactions]

Please note, these HSP values are estimations. It is based upon the “like seeks like” principle. It splits an ingredients interactions into three parameters; δD (Dispersion force interactions), δP (Polar forces interactions) and δH (Hydrogen bond force interactions). Hansen Solubility Parameters can help you find a wide range of products that are predicted to be compatible with Eastman™ Triacetin, Food Grade. A practical determination of these HSP values would provide higher certainty. Learn More.
