Gum mix system
Nexxus Foods specializes in the development of different gum blending systems to primarily stabilize protein solutions. Also, GB-CXC-110 is a functional gum system that provides viscosity, body and mouth-feel to protein-rich beverages. This hydrocolloid preparation will also provide stability to beverage suspension.
Nexxus Foods offers a specially formulated powder mix to replace an egg mix that is used to coat the surface of a variety of pastries and baked goods to give them a glossy appearance. The product can be applied to food by spraying, dipping or brushing.
Eggs play an important role in making pastries and bakery products in terms of structure, colour, flavour and consistency.
However, even though eggs are functional and essential for cooking, there are still many reasons not to eat eggs, such as their high cholesterol content, and the risk of allergens and salmonella. OVONEX, consisting of ground flaxseed, chia seed and soy protein, is designed to replace eggs in a multitude of pastry and bakery applications, such as breads, muffins, cakes, cookies, brownies, waffles and pancakes. Compared to eggs, our egg substitute is trans-fat free, cholesterol free, low in calories, low in fat (almost no fat content) and high in fibre (almost 30% fibre in a dry mix) and omega-3 fatty acids. In addition, OVONEX is also gluten-free and milk-free.
