Ingredion: Bakery Egg White Replacer
Ingredion’s new egg white replacer delivers improved texture and appearance in reduced egg white baked goods
Ingredion Incorporated says its new PRECISA® Bake 100 egg white replacer is a texturizng system to replace or reduce egg white products in baked goods.
Utilizing Ingredion’s proprietary DIAL-IN® Texture Technology, PRECISA® Bake 100 was designed to help manufacturers overcome rising egg white costs and improve profitability by enabling reduced egg white baked goods with improved texture and appearance. PRECISA® Bake 100 allows formulators to effectively replace 40-50% of egg whites in angel food, white and yellow cakes and muffins—without any loss of volume or texture. It also can achieve between 50% and 100% of egg white replacement in gluten-free breads.
“Because egg whites play a variety of important roles in the development of baked goods, including several key functionalities, egg white replacement has been difficult for manufacturers in the past,” notes Ricardo Rodriguez, bakery marketing manager for Ingredion Incorporated. “PRECISA® Bake 100 enables manufacturers to address these formulation challenges without compromising on the visual and textural appeal and stability of their baked goods applications, thus reducing their reliance on egg whites.”
PRECISA® Bake 100 also offers bakery manufacturers additional benefits beyond texture. The texturizing ingredient system is readily hydrated, so it works in both dry and liquid applications. Additionally, PRECISA® Bake 100 is dairy and soy free, so it can be used to meet a wide range of dietary needs, including gluten free, kosher and halal.
