August 23, 2010 – Arla Foods Ingredients has launched
an egg-free glaze that gives baked goods golden colour and lasting shine.



MULTILAC BK1111
is a natural, cheaper alternative to liquid pasteurised egg. The glaze can
reduce raw material costs between 10 and 30 per cent.

“MULTILAC BK1111
is based on our own innovative technology,” says Søren Rothbøl Nørgaard, head
of Arla Foods Ingredients’ bakery application centre. “Although we have sold
similar egg-free solutions for specific bakery products, this is the first
all-round solution in our range.”

Trials show the
egg-free glaze can give a higher, longer-lasting shine than traditional egg
wash. The glaze also holds toppings such as sesame and poppy seeds in place.
