E902 — пищевая добавка, антифламинг, глазирующий агент: воск свечной, candelilla wax (Е902)

Natural polymer produced from the leaves of the Mexican trees Euphorbia antisyphilitica, E. cerifera and Pedilanthus pavonis. The wax is a hard, yellowish tan to brown wax, and is obtained by boiling the leaves and stems in sulfuric acid, then skimmed from the surface, and further processed. It is a glazing agent, and it is widely used in foods and in cosmetics. As it's cheaper than other waxes like Carnauba and paraffin, it is often blended as an extender. Also used as a substitute for Carnauba wax (903/E903).
