Proprietary means that this is a formula to which the owner or developer has all rights and privileges. This formula would be one that is protected by copyright, patent and or trademark. Its developer or owner has exclusive rights to development, research, and commercial use of the formula.

cookie formulas and soda formulas are great examples.
