ECOSOYA WAX - Where has it gone?
Ecosoya wax manufactured by NGI is no longer in production. Here is an excerpt from a letter sent out to distributors, which explains why.
'As most of you know, the FDA ruled that partially hydogenated oils (PHO's) are no longer safe for food. This has had a huge impact on our industry given the majority of vegetable waxes are made with PHO's as well as our EcoSoya soy waxes. As a result, our current production facility is closing. ... The facility is closing December 31st.'
However, it isn't all doom and gloom as the letter goes on to say
'For many years now we have been conducting research on the next better generation of soy wax technology. Effective early 2017, we will have these higher performing soy waxes available'.
It will of course mean re-testing and perhaps changing wicks to suit the new wax, but it's better than having no viable soy wax at all:)
We will bring you the new soy waxes as soon as they become available to us:)
