The latest innovation from Puratos USA, Sunset Glaze Easy Plus, adds a premium golden shine to savory and sweet baked goods without the need for eggs or dairy.

According to a Puratos consumer survey, over 75% of US consumers preferring glazed products versus unglazed. Sunset Glaze Easy Plus can be applied before baking, is freeze/thaw stable, unflavored and does not leave any sticky residue on products.

“Using a traditional egg wash can be a headache in production, especially when it comes to food safety and pan cleaning” says Chris Gizzi, senior application specialist at Puratos. “Unlike other egg-wash alternatives, Sunset Glaze Easy Plus is completely water-based, significantly simplifying the pan-cleaning process.”

Sunset Glaze Easy Plus’s unique Ultra High Temperature (UHT) production technology and aseptic packaging result in a product that can be stored at ambient temperature, allowing bakers to free up valuable space in their cooling chambers. It’s also free from preservatives, eggs, dairy, GMOs, modified food starch and maltodextrin.

The benefits of this new glaze go beyond food safety, clean label and user experience.  According to a study by Yukan, a company that specializes in analyzing the environmental performance of products, bakers can cut their CO2 emissions in half when replacing pasteurized eggs with Sunset Glaze Easy Plus.
