PASADENA, CALIF. — Pak Group, through its North American brand Bellarise, has introduced Bellarise Shine, a dairy-free egg wash replacer. The ingredient is suited for a range of applications, including croissants, brioche and buns, and may help formulators avoid the variable cost of eggs.

“Up to now, commercial and industrial bakeries have had a very limited range to choose from when it comes to egg washes and high-quality egg wash replacers,” said Cam Suárez Bitár, marketing and public relations manager at Pak Group. “Bellarise Shine gives bakers that consistent, unmistakable and shiny glaze they’re always looking for, while helping them bake the breads that baby boomers and generations X, Y and Z want.”
