Confectioner’s Glaze – Beetlejuice!?!

I was checking on a candy to see if it had gelatin today and if it was contaminated with pork. The candy didn’t have gelatin; however, contained an ingredient called “Confectioner’s Glaze.” Curious, I googled the ingredient and was shocked when I learned it contained, “Beetlejuice… Beetlejuice… BEETLEJUICE!!!?

Confectioner’s Glaze is made from shellac and is actually the sticky secretion from lac insects. The secretions are heated, refined and approved for use on foods. Shellac is most often used on candy, produce, pills and as paint for wood.

Below are a couple of interesting articles I found that I thought I’d share. Plenty more if you Google search, “Confectioner’s Glaze.” You would never think the innocent, powdered sugar type term, would contain something that God forbids and says is unclean. In fact, all bugs except the Locust a type of grasshopper are unclean and God forbids us to eat as bugs were not intended for human consumption. Candy manufacturer’s are spraying a bug spray type candy glaze, a man-made, unclean pesticide all over some of the most popular candies on the market. I think it’s pure trick-er-y to get you outright sick-er-y.
