Cotton Candy TFA is just a 10% solution of EM

Feel free to use Cotton Candy TFA, any other 10% EM solution or adapt if you have stronger/weaker EM solutions available.

I am not aware of TPA selling pure EM, it would be impractical and probably a solid rather than a liquid.
I suspect they are one and the same thing. People are a bit lazy and use shortcuts.

This is made from ethyl maltol, diluted to 10% in PG.

It is not a strong flavor, since ethyl maltol won’t dissolve in PG at higher concentrations.

If it is 10% dilution, it would be the same as Cotton Candy, which is a 10% dilution of EM in PG ( by weight or by volume, I would have to check the MSDS)

If you look at my next reply TFA/TPA says that 10% is close to the max that can be dissolved in PG.

So this is 10% ethyl maltol or in other words cotton candy?

Probably, you can check with BCV who seem to have re-bottled this. It most likely is.
