a waste product in the manufacture of glucose; it is a syrupy, homogeneous, dark brown liquid that is produced upon secondary crystallization of glucose hydrate from solutions of saccharified starch. It contains 65-66 percent dry material, of which 68-72 percent is reducing substances and 5-6 percent is salts (including 2-3 percent sodium chloride). About 70 percent of the reducing substances, mainly glucose, ferments. Hydrol is used to make nutrient mediums, ethanol, and composite feeds, as well as in tanning leather.
