What is VG?
Vegetable glycerin is an organic composition which incorporates oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen, and embodies the chemical formula of C3H8O3. Its unique composition places it in a special category of carbohydrate called polyols. Generally speaking, carbohydrates are polyhydroxy aldehydes, or ketones, which integrate and harmonize with the common formula of (CH20)n, and their derivatives. The hydrogenated derivative of the carbon sugars glyceraldehyde, which is an aldehyde, and dihydroxyacetone, which is a ketone – is glycerin. It is because of this, VG has many practical uses.
Some of the most common uses is as a humectant in popular food brands and famous cosmetic products. This is because vegetable glycerin has the profound ability to retain and prevent moisture loss. It is also very commonly used as a sweetener. It is also the primary ingredient which turns the eliquid into vapor when it is heated. Its chemical properties are what gives VG its syrup-like viscosity, and what gives it a sweeter taste than propylene glycol.
