Denatonium benzoate is one of the most bitter substances known. Just a few parts per million will make a product so bitter that children and pets will not be able to swallow it. Denatonium benzoate makes sweet but highly toxic products such as antifreeze and detergents taste foul.
By the addition of a denaturant, ethyl alcohol is made non-consumable (bad-tasting/offensive odor)
Aim of the denaturation is to escape the excise duty on drinkable alcohol, and therefore to make alcohol available at a reduced rate for industrial applications, such as the usage in cosmetics and technical applications.
We offer denatonium benzoate in a pure powder form or in different solutions, such as :
- 2,5% in water
- 25% in MEG
- 25% in PG
