    In 2012, in order to reduce the use of synthetic pigments, the Starbucks chain in the United States switched to cochineal extract to add color to a drink, which caused a disturbance.

    However, globally, another food additive that is also secreted by insects, namely shellac, is safe.

    Shellac in English is a purple natural resin secreted by lac insects after sucking the sap of the host tree. Also known as red glue, comfrey, etc. In the middle Qing Dynasty (1765), shellac was used as the official name. Lac insects are insects of the genus Lacidae of the Homoptera order. There are more than 20 species of gum scales that can secrete shellac. At present, there are two types of artificial stocking, the deep color in China and the light color in South Asia.

    The world's largest producer of shellac is India, followed by Thailand, and China is third. Shellac was used in ancient India 3000 years ago. The epic "Mahabharata" describes the construction of the entire palace with dried shellac.

    The earliest record of the use of shellac in China is in the Western Jin Dynasty.
