Cheese ingredients firm Meadow Cheese has launched a savoury glaze that can be applied to pies, sausage rolls and other savoury pastries prior to baking to give a professional finish.

Ideal for plant bakeries, the new glaze is a cost-effective alternative to egg-based glaze. The solution is sprayed or brushed onto pastries before baking and acts as a barrier during the cooking process, to help reduce cracking and retain product moisture.

Supplied ready-to-use, the glaze has been produced using UHT techniques for enhanced shelf-life.
