I'm just learning what all this product can do. Started by using it in my homemade ice creams, and love it for that--the consistency is softer, creamier and more like store-bought. Then tried it in a low-carb recipe for a faux graham cracker pie crust, and it is much more moist and tasty with a couple of tablespoons of the vegetable glycerine added. I've got several more ideas of ways I want to experiment with this stuff!
NOW Vegetable Glycerine is just what I need for my severely dry skin. I have tried all kinds of lotions but nothing can compare to this product. I put it in a pump bottle and keep it in my shower, and I apply it after showering before I dry off. It's water soluble and it's not greasy. My skin stays soft, moisturized, and smooth. This product is fantastic if you have dry skin.
Great for keeping baked goods moist...and as an additional sweetener. I find using a mix of sweeteners such as erythritol, sucralose and glycerin produce a synergistic effect that sweetens better than any of them alone.
NOW glycerin is a thick and clear syrup. It has a nice sweet taste and blends in nicely to my smoothies. I have to use it as a sweetener because I'm weaning myself off of artificial sweetener and I can't have any real sugar products. Netrition's price is very good - one of the best on the Internet. Their shipping is very reasonable.
I highly recommend this brand - I have ordered it before - it's always good. It does not taste funny or have an
aftertaste. Use it for Low Carb, Low Sugar, Low Fat, Low
Glycemic Diet, etc.
This product is what the seller says and claims it is. I have always used and found this product very satisfying. Besides, no one can beat the price, considering its quality, easy availability, prompt delivery and reasonable transportation charges. What more can you ask for?
For months I looked at the sweeteners, and wondered about this. When i finally ordered one and received it, I tried it in a baking recipe for sugarless peanut butter cookies. I'm sold! It says I can use it on my face, but oh no!, it's purely for sweetening things around here!
HELP!! I just purchased this and would like to incorporate into baking to replace oil in a recipe. Any idea on proportions or how I go about doing this? Maybe a little glycerine and the rest apple sauce?
This is SUPERB! If you are an Atkins follower, and agree with their thought that by putting a few different sweeteners together makes for a better dessert, then you have to have this. Because it is liquid, it's great to drizzle over muffins, pancakes, and cooks up really well. A delightful product. Another must.
Vegetable Glycerine made by NOW is a good glycerine for cooking. 1.) I use glycerine (instead of oil) to make cole slaw. One rounded teaspoon is enough for one head of green cabbage. 1/4 cup of sugar-free syrup OR 1/4 cup water with 10 drops of flavoring, mix glycerine and 1/4 cup liquid together then stir into cut-up cabbage. Pineapple, unsweetened-applesauce with english-toffee-flavoring, OR coconut-flavoring and water are good cole slaw flavors. 2.) I stir about one teaspoon of glycerine into six egg-whites before scrambling (I usually add a tablespoon or two of resistant-corn-starch OR oat-fiber).
