EGG PRODUCTS

Egg powders

 

Dried egg products are particularly useful when there is no room for sufficient refrigeration, a demand for a long shelf life, in the preparation of dry mixes or if it has to be transported over long distances. In the case of egg powder moisture is removed from the egg product to give a dry powder.

Glazing with egg yolk gives the products a lovely dark and crispy crust.

SPECIALITIES

Within the group of users of egg powders there is a growing demand for specific recipes. Preparations aimed at an individual production process. Many of these recipes concern the addition of salts, sugars and other (natural) preservatives. In cooperation with our customers we are always looking for the best and most efficient solutions.
 

One much demanded speciality is the stabilised egg yolk powder StabilEgg®. StabilEgg® is an enzyme treated egg yolk powder with added salt especially for the preparation of cold sauces such as mayonnaise. The addition of enzymes prevents the separation of ingredients during preparation and makes it a bit easier to produce the best sauces.
 

For applications where extreme whippability is required, the product egg albumen crystals has been developed. Due to a special drying process and subsequent heat treatment an egg white product is produced that after adding water can be whisked in an instant into a very light and extremely stable whipped egg white with a long shelf life. This is in particular intended for production of chocolate coated marshmallows, meringue and macaroons.
