So, what is und carnaubawachs?

Und carnaubawachs, also known as carnauba wax, is a natural wax derived from the leaves of the carnauba palm tree, which is native to Brazil. This wax is often used in food products as a glazing agent or coating to give them a shiny appearance and prevent moisture loss. It is also commonly used in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals due to its water-resistant properties. Carnauba wax is considered safe for consumption by regulatory agencies, but may cause allergic reactions in some individuals. Its use in food products is generally limited to small quantities, as excessive consumption may result in digestive discomfort.
