Denatured alcohol is ethanol that contains additives that are poisonous, bad-tasting, or foul-smelling in order to deter consumption of the product. These blended alcohols also require less regulations and taxes when used according to the TTB standards. Denatured alcohol blends are separated into two groups – Specially Denatured Alcohol (SDA) and Completely Denatured Alcohol (CDA). MRE currently offers several types of these TTB approved formula blends:
