Pure Egg Albumen

Pure Egg Albumen (pure Egg White) that is pasteurised and dried ready to use.

It is most commonly used in Royal Icing, where the consistency of the strength of the egg white can be achieved.

Albumen is preferable to fresh eggs for several reasons,

No risk of Salmonella,

Because you add the water you can guarantee, how wet your mixture is going to be, where as with Fresh egg, you don't know how much the egg white is made up of water.

Also the egg white protein (albumen) may be very low, meaning that you would get a weak Royal Icing mix, that does not set strongly. Having a strong setting Royal Icing is great for Collar Work, Lace Work, and Royal Iced Run outs. 

Royal Icing Recipe:
Quick Method
Add 455g of White Icing Sugar, and 15g of albumen to a clean dry bowl.
Mix together the dry ingredients, once thoroughly mixed, get ready to beat (not whisk).

Add 80ml of water, beating constantly.
Beat on a medium setting until you have reached the desired consistency. (should resemble freshly whipped cream at soft peak)

Store in an airtight container out of the fridge, but in a cool place,  for up to 2 weeks maximum - during this time the mixture will need to be re-beaten, as it will separate.

If you are making this icing to pipe onto the top of cupcakes, or to wet ice a large cake, then you will need to add Glycerine - Approximately 2-3 teaspoons, per 455g.  If you don't add the glycerine, your icing will set solid and won't be easy to eat or cut!
