Beeswax Food Grade

Beeswax is known in the food industry as food additive E901. This natural wax of animal origin is a complex mixture of ca. 70 % non-glyceride esters (C38->C62), ca. 12-15 % fatty acids (C16-C36) and ca. 12-16 % paraffinic hydrocarbons (C21-C35). In Food, it is mostly used as a glazing agent for products such as chocolate, candy, pastry, nuts and coffee beans. In addition, it is also used as a gelling and encapsulating agent for food supplements.
