Food coatings play an important role in the processed food industry. Coatings can be applied to various food products to enhance or change their texture, taste, or nutritional profile. The process of coating can differ according to the nature of the substrate as well as the food coating ingredient, but primarily consists of mixing the two and allowing them to coalesce naturally. Since the process cannot be determined in precise equations, food coating is considered a ‘soft science’ in the food processing industry.

Food coating ingredients can be liquid or solid, depending upon the particular application, and are used to achieve various purposes. Roughly, the three main steps in the process of applying food coating ingredients are application, adhesion/coalescence, and stabilization. Adhesion consists of ensuring there is sufficient affinity between the substrate and the food coating ingredient. The stabilization process differs according to the food coating ingredient and ensures the coating stays on and stable for a long time.
