So, what is cera alba?

Cera alba, commonly known as beeswax, is a natural wax derived from honeybees. It is produced by the bees in the form of tiny scales that are secreted from glands on their abdomen. Beeswax has a warm, sweet aroma and a soft, pliable texture. It is commonly used in food as a natural thickener, emulsifier, and stabilizer, and can be found in a variety of products such as candy, chewing gum, and chocolate. It also has many non-food uses, such as in cosmetics, candles, and as a coating for fruits and vegetables to extend their shelf life. Beeswax is a versatile and sustainable ingredient that has been used for centuries in various cultures around the world.
