So, what is lanol?

Lanol is a versatile food ingredient that is derived from lanolin, a natural wax found in the wool of sheep. It is commonly used as an emollient in various food products, particularly in the production of baked goods, confectionery, and chocolate. Lanol acts as a natural lubricant and binding agent, enhancing the texture, mouthfeel, and stability of food products. It is also used as a coating agent for fruits and vegetables, helping to maintain their freshness and appearance. With its natural properties, lanol is a popular choice for manufacturers looking for a sustainable and eco-friendly food ingredient.
