here's an explanation that the Mt Baker Vapor has up
PG – Propylene Glycol
PG solution is an important factor in electronic cigarette juice
flavoring. Mt. Baker
Vapor uses USP grade Propylene Glycol which is FDA approved for uses such as: candy
manufacturing, dairy products, beverages and even pharmaceuticals. Propylene Glycol is
commonly shown in the media as being used in products such as antifreeze, is this true?
The short answer is yes, glycol is a component found in generally “environmentally
friendly” cooling equipment as it does have many purposes. The truth is, antifreeze is NOT
a component whatsoever in electronic cigarette juice
though. However, the media may
portray this to distort the perception of the electronic cigarette industry.
USP and FDA approved propylene glycol can be purchased in large volumes to make
ice blocks, manufacture ice cream and is used globally at wineries, distilleries and other
beverages manufacturing companies. It is odorless, colorless, flavorless, and in our own
federal governments’ terms, “harmless”, as it is safe for use in medications per the Food
and Drug Administration.
At Mt. Baker Vapor, we use the same USP, FDA approved “food grade” Propylene Glycol as
a base solution with other FDA approved food flavoring concentrates to create nicotine juice
Our house blend consists of VG as well, or Vegetable Glycerin and you can also use 100%
VG as base for e-juice.
Let’s also examine Vegetable Glycerin, another FDA approved solution found in electronic
cigarette juice. In a further topic we can discuss the reasons why we recommend our
proprietary house blend of 80% PG to 20% VG in our e-juices. But for now, we just want to
get some facts out about what is our great e-juices.
VG – Vegetable Glycerin
Most vendors tend to make juice at 70%PG and 30%VG
That is what most juices are.
