KA20DE coolant question

Greetings, I did some googling for which coolant to use with a KA24DE and found that ethylene glycol (green) coolant was recommend. At the auto parts store all the coolants that contain ethylene glycol also contain diethylene glycol. Is this ethylene glycol + diethylene glycol coolant good for my KA24DE?

Whoops mistyped the engine name in the title, new to Nissans, sorry.

I don't have a technical answer, but my napa 50/50 generic stuff has been running fine through my KA for 4 years.

isn't di just means there are two of them, strapped together.
It may be that in manufacturing the solo unit, some of the dimer is formed, and they saw no reason to remove it. but must some reason report it on the label.

i took out the wiki and there it is, but you know, wiki

Most ethylene glycol antifreeze contains a few percent diethylene glycol, present as an byproduct of ethylene glycol production.
