Egg Free Solutions

October 24th, 2011 | Posted by jwlbrace in daymer products | general update - (0 Comments)

Food Navigator are warning of potential price increases on egg and egg products in Jan 2012.  The reason cited is the move from conventional battery techniques which will be banned within the EU from next year.

If the UK market follows the German trend from 2010, then capacity could be down by 20%, therefore forcing an added on-cost onto egg and egg products for food manufacturers.

Please see here for further details- FoodNavigator.com

Ways to replace egg- partial and full- using Daymer’s range of products:

– egg wash and pie glazes

we have a range of AVEDEX starch products (dextrins) which can be used as an alternative in glazes and glazing systems

– egg as an emulsifier in mayo and liquid foods

ELIANE™ MC160 and Paselli MC150 E1450 modified potato starches can be used in egg-free mayo type applications

– egg in cakes for foaming and emusification

Clean label stabiliser systems and modified starch systems for foaming the cake mix in a liquid phase.

For more information, please contact us.

Avebe has added extra applications for its Etenia™ potato starch range, this time to enable lower levels of fat in cream cheese and ice-cream.

Etenia™  is said to have applications both in terms of fat replacement but also for hydrocolloid (guar gum, locust bean) substitutes in cream cheese and ice-cream.

“We are getting close to 0% fat reduction levels for cream cheese with Etenia,” explained Cindy Semeijn AVEBE’s Market Manager.  She added that hydrocolloid replacement with Etenia starches ensures dairy brand owners can appeal to increasing clean label demands, as they don’t have to add E-Numbers to the ingredients list.

In the EU Etenia™ can be labelled simply as ‘starch’.

From the AVEBE Press Centre

The AVEBE 2011/2012 starch campaign started this week with the supply of starch potatoes to the factory in Gasselternijveen.

The factories in Germany will begin processing on 15th August and the factory in Ter Apelkanaal will start on 22nd August.

Due to a continuous high demand for AVEBE products the campaign is commencing early.

So far, the growing season for starch potatoes has been somewhat erratic. Due to the drought in the spring followed by frost and locally hail a part of the potato crops will not achieve their maximum yield. The recent rainfall has been helpful for the development of the crops. However, the growing conditions in August are now of great importance for the size of the final harvest. Also the weather in September and October is critical for a successful harvest operation.

On the 6th July 2011 The Daily Express ran a front page story criticising both food retailers and the UK Government for their salt reduction strategies.

Is this an initial sign of the salt reduction trend easing down in the UK?
