27 Aug 2012 --- KMC has launched a new cost-effective and non-allergenic alternative to traditional egg wash and dairy-based bakery glaze. The new KMC GlazeMaker 25 provides superior shine and excellent adhesion.
To give an appealing surface to baked goods, the bakery industry has traditionally used egg wash or dairy-based glaze. However, price volatility and instable supply of egg products in certain parts of the world and in particular the recent situation in Europe following the new cage legislation, calls for new alternative solutions.
The new KMC GlazeMaker 25 is based on potato starch, which makes it a cost effective alternative with a secure supply situation. Also allergen issues are important today and potato starch represents an attractive non allergenic alternative to egg and dairy based solutions.
GlazeMaker 25 provides a superior shine that gives your baked goods that fresh and appealing look that attracts the consumer’s eye. In addition to providing a high gloss, GlazeMaker 25 possesses an excellent adhesion. Brush or spray the solution onto your baked goods before baking and add your desired topping. Whether it is sesame seeds on buns, salt on pretzels or other creative combinations, the topping will be fixed effectively thanks to the adhesiveness of the glaze solution. And the topping is kept in place even after freezing, thawing and baking.
Another advantage of KMC GlazeMaker 25 is the easy handling. No heating is required - the powder is added directly into water at room temperature. After a few minutes the solution is ready for use and it can be kept for several hours without refrigeration. The solution is applicable by brush as well as spray and it may be added either before or after baking – or both.
KMC develops, produces and sells food ingredients to more than 70 countries. Based in Brande, KMC has a turnover of 900 mio. DKK of which more than 90% is exported. The sales are made via a global distribution network consisting of a number of foreign subsidiaries as well as local distributors.
The product portfolio embraces a wide range of standard native and modified starches as well as differentiated solutions adapted to individual customer and application needs. KMC specializes in innovative solutions targeting customers within dairy, confectionery, bakery, soups, sauces and dressings and encourages close development projects with the customers.
