A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, like your business details, for example.
