GLYCERIN

Glycerin

Elaine writes:
Since glycerin is not a sugar to begin with, the "ol" at the end does not make it a sugar alcohol. Glycerin is considered to belong to the fat family. So does glycerol.

Seth writes:
Glycerine is legal. If it were not, then fat wouldn't be allowed either. Glycerol is what attaches three fatty acids to get a triglyceride. The body can convert it into a carbohydrate, but it is not a carb.

I found a very good article on glycerol and it has reconfirmed my previous feelings that it is fine.

I don't think I would use it in baking but I would have to study it a bit more.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
