Food Grade Ethanol (Ethyl Alcohol) Specifications
If you are wondering which type of alcohol (ethanol) is food grade, the answer is straightforward. The chemical formula for this type of ethyl alcohol is C2H5OH. Food Grade Ethanol is a colorless liquid solvent that is about 99.5% pure and is not denatured with poisons. This commonly used chemical is frequently labeled by retailers such as Lab Alley as “200 Proof”, “Food Grade Industrial Alcohol”, "ACS Reagent Grade", “undenatured ethanol”, "grain alcohol", "drinking alcohol", "pure alcohol" or “organic ethanol”. Technically, food grade ethanol can not always be classified as organic ethanol. Food Grade Ethanol sold by Lab Alley meets USP testing specifications. A permit is not required to purchase food grade ethanol online from Lab Alley. Use the Lab Alley Grade Selector to determine which grade of ethanol is right for your use or application.

Chemical, Physical and Solvent Properties Of Ethanol

Food Grade Ethanol Is Safe
Qualified experts in the U.S. (FDA) have determined that food grade ethanol is a substance that is safe to use in food products, cosmetics, beauty products, herbal extractions, perfumes, culinary extracts, food additives, beverages, cannabis products and medicinal plant extracts. Food grade ethanol is safe to drink although we do not recommend this application. When undiluted, food grade ethanol has a strong taste and a burning aftertaste. Standard ethanol is used in alcoholic beverages, as an antiseptic and as a fuel, whereas food grade ethanol is not used in these applications because it is more expensive. Pure undenatured ethanol is normally used in medical applications and as a food and plant processing solvent. Food grade ethanol is used in manufacturing processes where no harmful contaminants can be present in the products produced. Because ethanol kills microorganisms like bacteria, fungi and viruses, it is safely used in personal care products such as hand sanitizers, astringents and lotions. Food grade ethanol is manufactured using processes such as fermentation from all natural biomass products such as grains, sugar cane, sugar beet, corn, wheat and fruits.

Food Grade Ethanol Suppliers In The United States
The largest retailers and wholesalers of food grade ethanol ethanol in America include Lab Alley, Sigma-Aldrich, Fisher Scientific and Spectrum Chemical. Other “boutique” ethanol distributors sell ethanol for use as a culinary solvent. Science companies sell ethanol for industrial and laboratory use. Purchasing managers that source food grade ethanol often describe food grade ethanol as “pure”, “absolute”, "beverage grade alcohol" or “FCC grade ethanol”. You can order 100% alcohol and buy 200 proof alcohol (ethanol/ethyl alcohol) from Lab Alley.

Food grade ethanol is completely different than Everclear, a brand of grain alcohol produced in the USA by Luxco.  The type of ethanol used for fireplace fuel is also completely different than food grade ethanol. Do not buy 190 proof alcohol at a liquor store or wine store if you need food grade ethanol for you specific application. Many states in the U.S. ban the retail sale of 190-proof grain alcohol. These states require a permit to purchase it for commercial or medicinal use.  The bulk of "200 proof ethanol food grade" purchased in America is ordered online from lab and chemical supply companies such as Lab Alley. The food grade alcohol market is expanding rapidly. You can buy ethanol for sale online in the U..S from Lab Alley.

F.C.C. Grade Ethanol (Food Grade Ethanol) For Sale
The “FCC” acronym is an abbreviation for “Food Chemical Codex”. The FCC is a collection of standards used to verify the identity, quality and purity of the food ingredients. “FCC grade alcohol” or “Food Grade” ethanol is a natural product used in the food and beverage manufacturing and processing industries to extract essential oils, aromas and flavors from plant materials. For example, premium food grade ethanol purchased from Lab Alley, is used to manufacture vanilla extract by curing and processing vanilla beans in a mixture of water and ethanol.

ACS Reagent Grade Ethanol
This type of ethanol possesses a higher purity than laboratory and technical grade ethanol. It conforms to specifications defined by the Committee on Analytical Reagents of the American Chemical Society.

Laboratory technicians even use ethanol to makes sprays to sterilize their equipment.

Buying Food Grade Ethanol In California
A large percentage of the businesses and organizations that purchase food grade ethanol from Lab Alley are located in California where there are large cannabis processing facilities. These facilities make cannabis concentrate products, high terpene full spectrum extracts and distillates which are sold to medicinal and adult-use licensed dispensaries. Flow Kana operates the world's largest cannabis processing center in California. Some cannabis processing facilities avoid paying excise taxes by ordering extraction grade ethanol which has been denatured but is still safe for for a variety of cannabis extraction methods and techniques.  Extraction techniques are used to separate the components of cannabis and remove them from the plant matrix.

Permits Are Not Required To Purchase Food Grade Ethanol
Lab Alley customers are NOT required to apply and obtain a valid Federal Industrial Alcohol User permit from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB).

Food Grade Ethanol Applications In The Cannabis Processing Industry
Cannabis extraction facilities purchase food grade ethanol online from Lab Alley every day of the year. Cannabis potency testing and manufacturing labs order food grade ethanol from Lab Alley to test cannabis products for CBD and THC levels. Cannabis extraction facilities isolate specific compounds such as cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), myrcene, linalool and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).  Cannabis extraction grade (food grade) ethanol purchased from Lab Alley is used as a solvent by cannabis processing industry firms to manufacture cannabis products such as edibles and full spectrum CBD tinctures. Testing labs use solvents such as ethanol to perform HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) procedures to separate, identify, and quantify various cannabis flower components in a mixture. Cannabis products such as cannabis oil that are sold to consumers, often list the THC and CBD levels on the packaging. Labs obtain these measurements by using ethanol. CBD is used therapeutically for everything from chronic pain to insomnia. Cannabis companies are buying more food grade ethanol ever since President Trump signed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, which legalized hemp in all 50 states.

Buy Extraction Grade Ethanol For Cannabis Extraction
Many of Lab Alley customers buy extraction grade ethanol for use in large scale cannabis extraction facilities in the United States. Cannabis extraction facilities often buy food grade ethanol in bulk by purchasing 5 gallon pails and 55 gallon drums online through this website. Permits are not required to buy the food grade ethanol that is for sale here. This polar solvent is used to produce high quality extracts along with high cannabinoid and terpene yields. Terpenes are chemicals constituents of the essential oils from cannabis. These aromatic molecules are incredible medicinal value.  For mid-scale cannabis extraction operations, cannabis ethanol extraction is often preferred to hydrocarbon extraction methods. Ethanol purchased from Lab Alley is excellent for producing full spectrum tinctures and hemp extracts. CBD oil from cannabis is not the same as “hemp oil” or “hempseed oil” extracted from hemp.  Full-spectrum hemp and cannabis extracts are produced using solvent-based methodologies like ethanol or techniques such as lipid solvent extraction, hydrocarbon extraction and supercritical CO2.  Using ethanol is one of the most economical ways to produce cannabis and hemp extracts such as flavanoids and CBD. Supercritical CO2 is a more expensive but cleaner option.  Just the cost of a CO2 extraction machine can be expensive with some prices running from $135,000 to $150,000.  For more information about buying ethanol for cannabis extraction in the U.S., click here.

How To Buy Excise Tax Free Ethanol For Cannabis Extraction
A breakthrough alternative that avoids excise tax has been developed in Colorado. It is a solution comprised of 95% ethanol and 4.5% n-heptane – an equally effective solvent that is legally sanctioned in Colorado’s recreational cannabis laws- after which many states have since modeled their recreational cannabis legal structure.

Because n-heptane is unsafe for human consumption, this solution addresses two big problems:

  • An ethanol and n-heptane solution cannot be safety consumed by a human being, and therefore is not subject to the federal excise taxes that are notoriously high. This legal distinction can take the purchase of a 55 gallon drum of ethanol, totaling over $2000, and lower costs by over $1400 per drum.
  • N-heptane has a similar solubility parameter to ethanol, and only a slightly higher boiling point than ethanol (ethanol’s boiling point is 78.37C, where n-heptane’s is 98.42C), making it an easy addition to the extraction process requiring very few adjustments.

Pure 200 Proof Ethanol AdvantagesHigh Purity Extraction Grade Ethanol


Companies using extraction grade ethanol report only slight changes to their THC and CBD extraction methods and processes. Regardless, it is crucial to put products produced with unfamiliar procedures through vigorous analytical testing to ensure the product remains safe for market consumption. While pure n-heptane is a legal solvent under many state laws, it is not a food grade chemical, meaning it must be completely purged from final products, and of course, cannot be used in tinctures for edible manufacturing.
