A dragee [ draʒe ː ], also Dragée, from French, from Latin and Greek tragemata " dessert ", is a candy or pill with a coating which is used for the drug to improve the taste and consists of sugar, but otherwise, for example, from may consist chocolate.

The coatings of sugar are very stable against environmental factors such as water or atmospheric oxygen. Thus, the substances can be protected, which are not water - or oxygen- stable.
