Vegetable glycerin is a polyol and a type of glycerol. It’s a compound made from plant oils. It’s non-allergenic, non-mutagenic, and it’s not teratogenic.
It doesn’t do much really, but it’s used a lot as a base for extracts. For example, if you don’t want an alcohol-based herbal preparation, you can have a glycerol-based on instead.

Glycerol can extract things from plants quite effectively. For example, when I used to make up echinacea for a young child, I would often use glycerol as the base. Vegetable glycerin tastes quite nice, so it helps the medicine go down.
Vegetable glycerin is also used in pet foods, toothpaste, cosmetics, and e-cigarettes. Some people use it as a sugar substitute, but I don’t think it’s a great everyday food.
To be honest, I don’t think vegetable glycerin offers any benefit when it comes to treating Candida. As I said, it can be used as a base for herbal medication, but as a stand-alone treatment, it has nothing to offer.
