Confectioner's glaze is a clear, all-natural coating used to protect the quality and taste of mostly candy items. It is used to seal the candies from air and moisture.

The confectioners glaze is food-grade, wax-free natural "Lac." Lac is the generic name of the natural resin gathered by the Lac beetle that thrives on various host trees and shrubs in India, Burma, Indochina, and Siam. The Lac beetle converts the sap of the trees into resin. It is very similar to a bee's production of honey and is called "transferred nectar." The Lac resin is collected, crushed, washed, dried, and made into pure food glaze. The Lac beetle is not harmed in any way.

How do you make Glaze for cakes?

The simplest glaze is made by combining powdered sugar with just enough liquid for it to let it flow evenly from a spoon. Sifting the powdered sugar before adding liquid will prevent lumpy glaze. Water or milk may be used as the liquid, or any fruit juice. Lemon juice makes a delicious glaze when mixed with powdered (confectioners') sugar.

Is the lac beetle kosher?

Lac bug shell is edible, we have been eating it for years. We cover fruits in lac, and add it to candy (confectioner's glaze). But is it kosher?

See 613 commandments for more information.
