    Different Applications of Wax for Food Coatings

    Wax can be used for many different applications in the food industry. At Blended Waxes, we typically use two different types — paraffin and carnauba wax — because they are safe and edible. Our paraffin wax contains a blend of palm oil derivatives, vegetable materials and other ingredients, and our carnauba wax comes from the carnauba palm. Both deliver a shiny, protective finish.

    Whether you need to defeather fowl or add a protective layer to cheese, we have food-grade waxes for all your food applications.

    Duck Wax

    Removing the feathers and pin feathers from geese and ducks can be a difficult process. Duck wax is specially designed to make the process faster and easier.

    Our food coating wax for duck defeathering is made up of a combination of fully refined paraffin and microcrystalline wax. It can be used for both wet and defeathering techniques. After the wax is heated and the duck carcass is coated, the wax will begin to harden. Then, you’ll be able to easily pull out multiple feathers at once. The wax can also be reused if you need to repeat the process.

    Cheese Wax

    Semi-hard and hard cheeses benefit from a wax coating because these types of cheeses can easily begin to grow mold and spoil. With cheese wax, you can keep your cheeses looking and tasting as fresh as possible. We typically use paraffin or carnauba wax for our cheese coatings. Once the wax is melted, it can easily be dipped or brushed onto the cheese. Then, once you’ve peeled it off, you can continue reusing it.

    The Benefits of Food Coating Waxes

    Both of these food coating waxes offer several benefits. For example, along with preventing mold growth, our wax for cheese helps you:

    • Retain moisture in the cheese.
    • Give the cheese an aesthetically pleasing, shiny finish.
    • Extend the shelf life of the cheese.
    • Protect the cheese against airborne bacteria.

    Similarly, our wax for duck defeathering makes the process more efficient. Instead of plucking out individual feathers, the wax allows you to pull out feathers in clean, smooth strips. Depending on how much wax you use, you can also work on multiple ducks at a time.
