They are derived from sugars and fatty alcohols; therefore, they are generally favored for their manufacture from renewable resources. The raw materials for industrial manufacture are typically starch and fat, and the final products are typically complex mixtures of compounds with different sugars comprising the hydrophilic end and alkyl groups of variable length comprising the hydrophobic end. When derived from glucose, they are known as alkyl polyglucosides." [Wikipedia]
Alkyl polygycosides are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) for use in foods; [FDA] Commercially available as an aqueous solution with average water content of 50%; An irritant that may cause serious eye injury; [ECHA REACH Registrations]
