U4EA Ethyl Maltol Crystals
Ethyl Maltol is a very pleasant smelling chemical that is used as a flavourant for the food, beverage, tobacco, and fragrance industry.
Ethyl Maltol sweetens flavours in liquid.
Suggested use: Dissolve 1 gram ethyl maltol in 9ml of propylene glycol.
TIP: Warm the propylene glycol in the microwave, then add ethyl maltol powder to the warm propylene glycol.
Diluted mixture can then be added to your liquid. Start with one or two drops per 6ml of liquid. Add more or less to suit your taste.
Solubility: Alcohol - 12%, Propylene Glycol - 5.5%
Solutions of EM are commonly found at between 2.5-10% depending on the carrier solvent.
PG can attain a max solubility of ~100mg/mL (10% solution) of EM, while VG can only obtain ~55mg/mL. However, ethyl alcohol is suitable for very saturated solutions of ~150mg/mL and recommended for maximum EM solubility as a carrier solvent. Recommended dilutions for final end concentrations of EM in eliquid are ~1-5mg/mL (0.1-0.5%) to start, of course adjusting for taste preference.
