So, what is microcrystalline wax?

Microcrystalline wax is a versatile food ingredient that is commonly used in the food and beverage industry as a thickener, emulsifier, and coating agent. It is a petroleum-derived wax that has a smooth and creamy texture, and is known for its ability to enhance the texture, stability, and shelf life of food products. Microcrystalline wax is also odorless, tasteless, and colorless, making it a great choice for adding functional benefits to food products without affecting their taste or appearance. Its unique properties also make it a popular ingredient in the production of confectionery, chewing gum, and other sweet treats.
