Is Your Apple Wearing Makeup?!
- 8 Months ago
A question asked by my client about apples, urged me to share some information with all of you on this topic. I am sure most of us would have come across this: Wax on apples! Either most of us are not affected by the hoax and continue eating it, or most of us would have started looking for other options. What do you think? Is it a hoax or the truth?
Let me demask the fruit!
Yes! The shiny and tempting apples you buy for your family has a layer of wax on them. Not only apples, many other fruits and vegetables have a wax coating that makes them look better and last longer. But the wax that is used is edible and safe to consume. Most of them are natural waxes like carnauba wax obtained from the leaves of the palm tree and candellia wax got from a variety of shrubs grown in deserts. These waxes are certified as edible.
