The mixes are designed to replace up to 50% of the cocoa powder without affecting functionality, taste or colour. Used in conjunction with cocoa powder, it prolongs cocoa powder and reduces the cost of ingredients. The use of a cocoa substitute reduces the heavy metal content. Nexxus Foods also offers a lactose-free formula.

Natural mold inhibitor
Eggs play an important role in the production of 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, made from ground flaxseed, chia seeds and soy protein, is designed to replace eggs in a multitude of bakery and pastry applications, such as breads, muffins, cakes, cookies, brownies, waffles and pancakes.
Compared to eggs, this egg substitute is trans-fat free, cholesterol free, low in calories, low in fat (almost negligible fat content) and high in fibre (almost 30% fibre in a dry mix) and omega-3 acids. In addition, OVONEX is also gluten free, egg free and milk free.
