Shellac

 

 

Shellac is a glazing agent made from the secretion of female lac bugs. The beetles secrete the resin on tree branches and the layer of shellac is then scrapped off.

This is used on our sugar decorations to make it shiny.

This is something which is found in a variety of products sweets, lipsticks and inks, and sometimes even used to give fruit a shinier appearance.
