Application of confectionery glaze
Confectionery glaze is known to be refined mass of sugar, cocoa butter substitute, cocoa powder with or without flavors and flavoring substances.
The coating has two major features causing its application in food production. The first of these features is taste and nutrition profiling. Confectionary, dairy and bakery products covered or decorated by confectionary glaze gain extra nutrition value of end product. Additionally, longer shelf-life is another quality of confectionary glaze as it prevents a product from drying. In addition, glazed quality products are good in appearance, which makes it more attractive for customers and gives it additional consumer performance.
