What Food Grade Shellac does

Providing protection from moisture and thus extending shelf-life of a product, food grade shellac is an overlay that not only enhances a product’s appearance, but delivers a firm finishing film for the pre-print coatings. For pharmaceuticals, food grade shellac supports swallowing bitter tablets. Food grade shellac is also known as confectioner’s glaze, confectioner’s resin, natural glaze, and resinous glaze, when applied in food and confections. The USFDA has labeled the food grade shellac as generally recognized as safe (GRAS). It is used widely as a glaze on multiple food items such as chewing gum, jelly beans/candy fruits, and coffee beans, etc. Additionally, it is used widely as a pharmaceutical glaze as the enteric coating for capsules and tablets by the drug and the nutritional supplement industry.
