Vegan Glazing Agent for Panning


Recommended Posts

After much research on finding alternatives to Shellac as a glazing agent in chocolate panning, the alternative I've found is corn (maize) protein called Zein.


Gum arabic has been floated in the past but its more of a polishing agent with little glazing properties i.e. protection against moisture in a high humidity environment, prolonged shelf life, aesthetical protection.


Has anyone had any experience in working with this or alternative vegan Glazing agents? Any pointers on where one can find this or a suitable alternative in limited quantities?

Thanks Kerry!

The waxes seem geared to hard shells.. per the chart below it seems like the offerings are either Certiseal or Vegetable based protein glaze (mentioned in the chocolate coatings and then glaze section).


Unfortunately I'm not in the US, rather in the UK although I'd happily pay the shipping if I was able to get a small batch.


Really useful though! I'll try and speak to their contact support, perhaps they can guide me elsewhere or to trade shows more local to me.
