Glycerol is a synonym for glycerine and glycerin

This is the definitive article on the subject of how glycerin is made commercially. It has become recommeded reading by homework helper sites such as Nettrekker.

The article:

http://www.materials.addr.com/soap3.html

Below is info about Nettrekker's review of another article published on eoMeo. Nettrekker rated the article on soap similarly.

http://www.materials.addr.com/nettrek1.html

Even tho the article was intended primarily to help people understand how animal husbandry is involved, or not involved, in the production of soap and glycerine, the article is being recommended, because of its credibility, accuracy, and how easy it is to understand, for anyone who is interested in the subject of how soap and glycerin are made, what the paths from earthly origin (raw materials) to commercial product, are.

I don't understand what you are asking here.

Earlier you asked is glycerol from animals, and you got your answer.

What difference does it make if it is an ingredient in (as opposed to a constituent of) a chocolate bar, as listed on the label, or an ingredient of something else, or simply existing as plain glycerol? The answer to you question is the same -- it is produced from fats, either animal fats, plant fats or both.

My guess is that it is such a chemically pure product, that it may be difficult to find enough traces of the plant oil or animal oil it was made from, to determine by forensic tests, which it came from, or whether it came from a mixture of both. The only solution to determining where it came from is to actually follow the trail -- a task that would take years of work for every batch of glycerol, and might never yield results, as sometimes people are either unwilling to tell you where they bought something, other times, hoping to confuse their competitors who buy the same product, they will lie about where they got something.
