Aftershine comes in powder form and is simply mixed with cold water for a versatile and less messy alternative to liquid egg glaze.
Applied on hot products straight out of the oven, it gives a professional golden finish to patisserie, bread, buns and brioche. Different levels of glaze intensity can be created by varying the recipe.
Cracking the egg-less code
According to Dawn Foods, its Egg Free Glazes result in reduced costs, minimal bacterial contamination and no lingering egg aroma. They are suitable for most bakery applications, and are made with vegetable oil and absolutely no e-numbers, palm oil or preservatives.
The range includes Liquid Emulshine Extra, used for glazing before and after proofing. The glaze is vegan-friendly and ready-to-use, both freeze- and bake-stable and ideal for more demanding applications like frozen bake off. It comes in a regular and a sugar-free version.
Unishine Plus – again, ready-to-use and vegan-suitable – can be applied before or after baking to give a non-sticky, long lasting, glossy shine to sweet and savoury baked goods, and finally, Instashine is another vegetarian-suitable ‘just add water’ powder that is applied before baking.
