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.

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
