Egg white replacer
Company: Corbion Caravan, Lenexa, KS
Ingredient Snapshot: Function Plus 150W, a new egg white replacer from Corbion Caravan, helps bakers keep their ingredient costs down, while still producing the sweet baked goods customers want. According to the company, Function Plus 150W allows bakers to replace 50-100 percent of egg whites in sweet baked goods, is easy to handle and scale, and can be used to replace both liquid and powdered egg whites. It can be added directly to the mixer with other dry ingredients; no special equipment is required. Function Plus 150W is not designed to be a high whip solution for angel food cakes. In testing, the solution’s formulation of specialized whey proteins, gums, enzymes and emulsifiers proved successful in a variety of sweet baked goods, including cakes and chemically leavened batters.
