Details

description: zein is the water-insoluble prolamine 
from corn gluten, manufactured initially as a concentrated
powder. it is unique in its ability to form odorless, tasteless, 
clear, hard and almost invisible edible films. since zein films
are completely safe to ingest, it is the perfect coating for foods
and pharmaceutical ingredients.

zein is extracted from gluten by physical rather than chemical
means and is, therefore, totally natural. it is a food ingredient, 
not an additive. zein is shown to be remarkably resistant to 
bacterial attack, which frequently decomposes other proteinaceous
material. it seems to repel many insects such as the indian meal moth,
which often infests nut and grain products that are unprotected.

applications: zein is presently used to coat candy, flavors, 
pharmaceutical tablets and ingredients which are encapsulated 
in time-release, granulation and seeds. the coating forms used 
are general film coating and enteric coating. in the food and confection 
industries, zein is used for coating enriched rice, candies, such as 
chocolates and jelly beans, dried fruits, nuts, nut meats, and also for 
the encapsulation of flavors and sweeteners.

zein can be combined with many other ingredients to give different
coating qualities and with colors to give a wide range of color coatings. 
it is considered a better coating than shellac (confectioner?s or 
pharmaceutical glaze) because zein coating solutions dry faster 
offering extended shelf-life, particularly under high-humidity and 
high-heat conditions.

safety: zein was generally recognized as safe (g.r.a.s.) by 
the usfda in march, 1985. evidence of its safety is the fact that it has 
been used for coating enriched rice for several decades. zein is now 
in the usp xxiv nf xix.

in replacing shellac with zein, one would be replacing a highly complex
organic acid insect exudate imported from southeast asia with a true 
food ingredient.

labeling: the name zein may be used on product labels, as well 
as "confectioner's glaze", "vegetable protein glaze", "natural glaze", 
"vegetable protein coating" and "corn protein coating".
