But with this, the question arises that why did the sitting shopkeeper buy this tragedy by offering wax. What is the wax coating? Why does it happen? How dangerous is wax coating? Let's understand the whole matter.

# Why does wax coating occur?

Why apply wax to an apple or other fruits? Fruits and vegetables themselves leave a light layer of wax. This is a natural way to keep yourself safe with fruits and vegetables. But the risk of early spoilage of these fruits and vegetables increases as soon as the tree or plant breaks. In such a situation, farmers and gardeners put a layer of wax on them to protect them from the weather and early rotting. So that by the time these fruits and vegetables reach the market, they do not deteriorate. Wax coating is especially done on expensive fruits.

Wax. that is the problem. The wax coating, which started several decades ago, was a direct achievement of making fruits safe in the market. But later the shopkeepers made it a business of glitter.

But it is said that not every shining thing is gold, just like that every shining apple is not healthy. Wax plated on an apple is dangerous. But not every wax. There are some varieties of wax whose institutions are allowed to layer. To maintain freshness?

# Which wax can be used?

According to the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), vegetable wax can be used on fruits. Now the question is what is the difference between this wax and the remaining wax? First, let's understand what is natural wax?

Authorities only talk about using natural wax, but most shoppers use chemical wax.

Carnauba wax - called the queen of wax. It is also known as Brazilian wax or palm wax. Tropical Brazil is extracted from date palm leaves. If its quantity is increased then it is also used in shoe polish. By the way, it is mostly used on medicine pills. So that the patient can swallow capsules or pills comfortably. The commercial wax used on vegetables is also a carnauba.

Many times if the wax is applied in more than the prescribed quantity, the wax can still stick to the fruit after it is washed.

This wax is also used extensively in the cosmetic industry. Carnauba wax is added to the mascara, eyeliner, lip gloss and lipstick to add shine. Actually, Carnauba is the longest melting wax. Therefore, it is used as a 'conscience enhancer' in make-up. Also sold separately on Amazon.

Wax coating is done to seal the homemade jams and jellies etc. and to keep the inner layer safe.

Apart from Carnabua, two other types of waxes are considered natural. Bees Wax and Shellac Wax. In the process of making honey, these waxes are made. And permission to wax their food also gives food authorities.

The European Food Safety Authority (ESFA) has also given some instructions for wax coating on fruits and vegetables. ESFA has found in its research that eating the Carnauba wax coating will only worsen the digestive system of humans when the wax is higher than the 'fixed quantity'. The other type of wax is not edible.
