So, what is carnaubavoks?

Carnaubavoks, also known as carnauba wax, is a natural wax derived from the leaves of the carnauba palm tree native to Brazil.

In the food industry, carnaubavoks is used as a glazing agent, emulsifier, and stabilizer, providing a shiny appearance and helping to prevent products from sticking together. It is considered safe for consumption and is often found in candies, gum, and chocolate products.
