Free from Egg
Health- and sustainability-conscious consumers are driving the “free-from” trend by asking for egg-free alternatives. Numerous recent public health concerns, such as avian influenza and fipronil contamination, have also increased the importance of egg replacement. Moreover, egg is a costly ingredient with considerable supply and price fluctuations. Replacing egg can be very challenging, however, as it represents an essential, multi-functional component in many fine bakery products.
Here WACKER presents a solution for up to 100% egg replacement in ready-to-use powder mixes that still fulfill the quality and sensory expectations of consumers: CAVAMAX® W6. Made by enzymatic conversion of starch, CAVAMAX® W6 is produced in a patented process from renewable raw materials. The cyclic oligosaccharide consists of 6 glucose molecules.
Functionality of CAVAMAX® W6 in Fine Baked Goods
Egg has a major impact on fine baked goods, from the processability of the batter to the determination of quality parameters such as volume, texture, taste and shelf-life. Through its unique properties, CAVAMAX® W6 improves batter aeration and the stability of fat droplets and gas cells. The synergy of CAVAMAX® W6 with proteins stabilizes the texture and retains the moistness of the final baked good.
