No Diacetyl for You!
At the DJC, we understand that our e-liquid flavors are only as good as the ingredients that we use. We carefully source each and every ingredient, making sure that every single component that goes into our vape juices is exceptionally high in quality and guaranteed to satisfy.
Maybe you’ve already heard of diacetyl, a flavoring ingredient that’s used in some e-juices. If so, you may know that this ingredient has been linked to certain health concerns. That’s why we refuse to use diacetyl in our vape juice products. Besides the fact that it can, in certain instances, put a user at risk of harm, it’s also a cheap, low-quality ingredient that isn’t, in our opinion, conducive to a high-quality, authentic-tasting vape juice flavor.
What’s Diacetyl Anyway?
Diacetyl is a chemical that’s naturally found in certain foods such as butter, coffee, honey and apples. In these foods, diacetyl exists in trace amounts. It’s known for its creamy, buttery taste which is why it’s often used as a flavoring agent for prepared foods such as microwaveable popcorn and synthetic butters like margarine.
Why is Diacetyl Used in Vape Juice?
In the early days of the vaping industry, lots of e-liquid manufacturers used diacetyl to add a creamy, savory taste to their flavors. Because this ingredient is very cheap, it helps keep manufacturing costs down. The problem is that diacetyl started to become linked to respiratory ailments such as coughing, shortness of breath and wheezing.
The negative effects of diacetyl weren’t so much experienced by vapers, but, rather, those who worked in manufacturing plants in which this ingredient is used. When diacetyl is boiled, it permeates the air, putting workers at risk since they’re inhaling high amounts.
Still, hearing about the potential effects of diacetyl, vapers became alarmed and started seeking out e-juices that were made with other types of flavoring agents.
Why We Will Never Add Diacetyl to Our Batches
DJC strives to be as transparent with our customers as possible. We refuse to add any ingredients to our e-liquids that have been directly linked to serious health problems. That’s why diacetyl will never make an appearance in our juice batches.
Our e-juices consist of vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), flavoring agents and nicotine. Among those flavoring agents are ingredients that we’ve researched and obtained from extremely trusted sources. We’re proud of the fact that our juices taste vape so great, and that has everything to do with our standards when it comes to the flavoring agents that we use.
Now that vaping has been popular for quite a while, more and more studies are being done to study the effects of long-term exposure to e-liquids. As of now, things are looking good. We also take extra care to comply with manufacturing regulations in order to ensure that our customers feel good about using our vape juices over other companies.
Besides, flavor is our very first priority. We don’t want to use cheap chemicals just to fatten our wallets. When we set out to create an apple flavor, for example, we want you to taste the freshness and ripeness of a real apple. To do this, we take a lot of time finding the most authentic flavoring agents on the planet.
Diacetyl-Free is the Way to Vaping Be
At DJC, you don’t have to worry about consuming diacetyl while you vape. All of our ingredients in our e-liquids are as high in quality as they come.
