Ethyl Maltol Liquid Concentrate
A 10% Ethyl Maltol liquid formulation in PG is your liquid concentration of choice as a flavoring agent, enhancer, and a sweetener. It is worth mentioning that Ethyl Maltol is different from Maltol, and is 4 to 6 folds more potent than Maltol.
Basically, how much volume of your EM liquid concentrate should be used in your DIY liquid depends on the fact whether you need it as a sweetener or as a flavoring agent.
As a sweetener, we do not recommend using more than 8-10% of your total liquid, for a reason; you already have a sweet component in your e-liquid base, which is the VG.
On the other hand, when you use it as a single layer flavoring agent to produce a cotton candy flavored e-liquid and based on your tasting preferences; you may go from 12% up to 18% of your total produced e-liquid volume. But, when used with multiple layers of flavoring agents, you may go from 5% up to 13% of your total produced DIY e-liquid.
Ethyl maltol belongs to the family of Pyranones and derivatives. These are compounds containing a pyran ring which bears a ketone in its structure.
