When dealing with donut icings and glazes, a common problem is that they tend to break down rather quickly, leading to a wet, sticky and ultimately undesirable product. To combat this problem, manufacturers often use stabilizers. The most effective stabilizer is agar, and consequently it's the most expensive ingredient in icings and glazes. TIC Gums has developed an agar extender that has the same functionality in icings and glazes, with the added benefit of cost reduction. Ticaloid DG 671 is a newly developed hydrocolloid blend, able to reduce the necessary amount of a stabilizing ingredient by 15%, providing greater efficiency and a reduction in ingredient costs. For more information on its capabilities or any of our other hydrocolloid solutions, please call us at +1-800-899-3953 / +1-410-273-7300 or chat live online.
