Sunset Glaze - The Golden Egg-wash alternative

Sunset Glaze - The Golden Egg-wash alternative

Article

Sunset Glaze is one of the ingredients in this month's Taste Tomorrow dessert, the reinvented classic: Tarte Tropézienne. Although only a small element in the full ingredient list, the shine that Sunset Glaze brings to the finished product makes it look fresher and is bound to enhance one’s perception of the quality of the baked good. A minor ingredient with major impact. 

Sunset Glaze is the perfect finishing touch that brings a long-lasting, consistent golden shine to bakery applications such as soft breads, buns, puff pastries or even savoury applications. It is ready-to-use, egg-free, unsweetened and non-sticky, which makes it very convenient to process. When launched, Puratos' Sunset Glaze was the first product of its kind on the global baked goods market. A true innovation!

Besides an improved product appearance, it also brings benefits to the production process of artisanal and industrial bakers and patissiers. Using eggs represents a risk in bacterial contamination in production lines especially when they are close to ovens and temperature changing machines. Avoid such consequences by opting for Sunset glaze, an egg free solution with no additives and only composed of plant based ingredients which also exist allergen free.

Using the same quantities, it’s possible to glaze 10% more baked goods with Sunset Glaze than with regular egg washes while also avoiding price fluctuations over the seasons like you might incur with eggs. Furthermore, Sunset Glaze is UHT sterilised, which means it can be stored at room temperature (max. 20 °C) for up to 9 months. This means it has a longer shelf and makes the product suitable for global use.

In short, Sunset Glaze:

  • is a ready-to-use egg-wash alternative.
  • brings a long-lasting, consistent golden shine to bakery applications such as soft breads, buns, puff pastries or savory applications.
  • can be applied before baking, and is suitable for all kinds of equipment: brush, spray guns, spraying machines.
  • is UHT (ultra high temperature) sterilised so it can be stored at room temperature for up to 9 months.
