Glycerol is an organic compound, in the alcohol class, more specifically a trihydroxy alcohol. It is a colorless, odorless and viscous liquid, with sweet taste. The three hydroxyl groups are responsible for its miscibility with water, alcohol and most organic solvensts, and for its hygroscopic nature. It is highly used as humectant in food, in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
