"Ethanol dominated the Food-grade Alcohol Market, by type, in 2015" 

Food-grade alcohol is defined as a type of alcohol used in a wide range of applications in food & beverages and health care & pharmaceutical sectors. The Food-grade Alcohol Market, based on type, has been segmented into ethanol and polyols. Ethanol contributes to a larger market share as it is largely used in the production of alcoholic beverages. Ethanol is also popularly used as a preservative in the food industry to increase the shelf life of end products and in manufacturing colors and flavors for food applications. Due to its volatility, ethanol is widely used in the food industry as a main ingredient base for the manufacturing of a wide range of alcoholic beverages coupled with diverse functions such as preservative, coloring/flavoring agent, and coatings, hence boosting the demand for food-grade alcohol.
