Our Chinese food glaze is a deep red sweet, aniseed flavoured glaze.
It is Carmine free, and so suitable for vegans. Carmine is a red pigment derived from crushed cochineal insects that is sometimes used as a food colouring.
Chinese glaze provides a Chinese food flavour that is a delicate balance of sweet, sour, salty, and savoury flavours, combined with aromatic and pungent spices and herbs to create a unique and delicious taste experience.

Carmine-free Chinese food glazes are a great alternative for those who are vegan, vegetarian, or have allergies to carmine, and can add a unique and delicious flavour to many different types of dishes. They are often used to balance out the flavours in a dish and can make even simple ingredients taste extraordinary.
