Dissolved Powder Glycerite 

A dissolved glycerite has a determined amount of a vitamin powder, mineral powder, and/or powder herb extract dissolved into a solvent of glycerin and water liquid to make glycerite.

Alcohol may be used in the solvent for making a dissolved glycerite, but is unnecessary, since no extraction process is required to dissolve a powder into a glycerite, but alcohol does have the benefit of extending the expiration date 2-3 years.

Dissolved tinctures will have the potency listed in "herb weight per serving", in milligrams (mg) per milliliters (ml), is listed as an ingredient on the supplement label in the facts box section.

Powder Extract Dissolved Glycerite Weight Ratio

A manufacturer may use a ratio designating their dissolving process of a 4:1 powder extract by stating that their tincture is 8:1, which reads, by their own batching and marketing method, as "8 pounds initial herb weight per 1 gallon final volume". To do this, they obtain a powder extract of 4:1, which is "4 pounds into 1 pound" and use 2 pounds of the 4:1 powder extract dissolved into one gallon, so that the initial herb weight represented is equivalent to 8 pounds. In actuality this is actually "236mg powder extract into 1ml" and therefore not a true extraction tincture, but a dissolved tincture.
