Food coating is a process in which a food product is covered or coated with a layer of ingredients to improve its appearance, texture, taste, or shelf life. The coating can be made of a variety of ingredients, including flours, starches, batters, bread crumbs, and spices. Coating is used to enhance the taste and texture of foods, to protect the food from drying out, to reduce oil absorption during frying, to improve the appearance of the food, or to add a new flavor to the food. Food coating is commonly used for chicken, fish, vegetables, and other foods that are fried, baked, or roasted.
