Glycerin is a neutral, colorless, thick liquid with a wide range of food, pharmaceutical and industrial applications. It is highly valued as a skin moisturizer in soaps and lotions, a softening agent in candy and baked goods and a plasticizer in cellophane, to name a few uses. It is noted to be non-toxic and non-irritating with no known negative environmental effects. Cargill will work with a full range of customers to build its glycerin business both domestically and globally. More info: Chris Aud, (800) 842-3631.
