In the bakery sector, appearance is a fundamental factor that must be considered because it can have a decisive impact on the purchasing experience
As operators in the industry well know,  a golden, shiny surface is immediately synonymous with fragrance, freshness and quality
In traditional recipes, browning and shine are achieved with eggs, brushed onto the surface of the products just before baking. 
However, this technique does not consider egg intolerances and the needs of those increasing consumers who do not wish to consume foods of animal origin. 
It is estimated that by 2027 the market for plant-based foods will be worth $74.2 billion, with a CAGR of 11.9% from 2020 to 2027 (source Meticolus Research®). The sector is growing rapidly everywhere in the world and in Europe from 2018 to 2020 the value of sales increased by 49% (source Smart Protein Project).
