Ready-to-Use Coatings

FloZein Vegan Glaze

     For those who would prefer not to resolubilize Zein powder, we offer a RTU glaze.  The glaze is mixed in a hydrous ethanol solution and is available in either a 10% or 15% Zein concentration.

Cozeen™ Vegan Coating for Nuts and Other Porous Materials

     A ready-to-use proprietary formulation, Cozeen™ forms an elastic film around food particles, extending shelf-life and providing a nutritive, attractive coating.

     Cozeen™ exhibits excellent moisture barrier properties. It is somewhat more hydrophobic than a simple Zein film. It will fill any possible micropores that can occur in an ultra-thin film, providing an almost impervious coating to air and moisture for porous products.

     Cozeen™  meets the Department of Defense’s specification for nut coating which requires a shelf-life of three years stored at 80℉.

     Cozeen™ is available in the following configurations:

          300 Series: Contains responsibly sourced palm oil

          200 Series: Contains coconut oil

          Type N: Ready to use liquid, contains ethanol

          Type NA: Ethanol-free paste, needs to be solubilized

          PF: Preservative free (BHA and BHT)

     Typical Applications

  • Coating porous foods like dried fruits, nuts, and nutritional bars.

  • Coating sticky products (like gummies) to facilitate packaging and reduce clumping.

MasterCoat ZZ-F150 Glaze

     MasterCoat® Glaze is a ready-to-use vegan confectioners glaze.  It is made with vegan FloZein and is an excellent, cost-effective alternative to food shellac.  MasterCoat Glaze forms a thin, edible film on food, pharma and nutraceutical products, extending the shelf-life by creating an oxygen, moisture, and microbial barrier.

     The product is quick drying and can be used alone or in conjunction with MasterCoat® polishing agents.

MasterCoat Polishing Agents

     MasterCoat® Polishes are water soluble and form a high gloss on chocolates and confectioneries.  Polishes are quick drying and can be used with MasterCoat® ZZ-F 150 Glaze or any Zein-based confectioners glaze.

MasterCoat® PO-TT555A: A polishing agent that will achieve a very high gloss on milk and dark chocolate panned items. 


     Aqua Zein has the same coating properties as FloZein™. It is a proprietary formulation of a water-suspendable FloZein™ and propylene glycol solution.
      Aqua Zein 14% contains ammonia. Aqua Zein 10% is formulated for the user who must restrict organic solvent vapor emissions.
