Ingredients and retail products manufacturer Fayrefield FoodTec (Crewe, Cheshire) has developed Geltec egg replacers for use by bakers in place of real eggs. The egg replacers contain functionally enhanced milk proteins and there are different varieties, designed to replace a specific egg product for a specific application.

According to the company, Geltec has a number of product benefits, including cost savings, extended shelf life for baked goods, lower fat and cholesterol than real eggs and ambient storage with no refrigeration or freezing required.
