We investigate how the QCD equation of state can be reconstructed by a continuous mass distribution of non-interacting ideal components. We find that adjusting the mass scale as a function of the temperature leads to results which conform to the quasi-particle model, but a temperature-independent distribution also may fit lattice simulation results. We interpret this as a support for the quark coalescence approach to quark matter hadronization.
