Company: Glanbia Nutritionals, Fitchburg, WI
Ingredient Snapshot: According to Glanbia Nutritionals, OptiSol 3000, an extension of its OptiSol range, provides a cost-effective alternative to eggs for numerous bakery applications, including pancakes, waffles, cookies and gluten-free muffins. It has recently been shown to achieve the same sensory profile in waffles as whole liquid eggs, with similar crumb, texture and moisture characteristics compared to a waffle made with eggs. It can be used in a 1:1 inclusion rate for dried whole eggs in many cases. This clean-label ingredient can be listed by manufacturers as "flaxseed meal and whey protein concentrate." It is also certified kosher, GMO-free and gluten-free, and is low in cholesterol.
