Avatar Introduces Allergen Free Release Agents
University Park, IL, June 15, 2007. . . Avatar Corporation announces the availability of allergen/soy lecithin-free release agents for the baking industry. Major food allergens and derivatives containing the protein from these allergens must be labeled on food packages. Soy lecithin, which contains trace amounts of soy proteins and is commonly used as a release agent in baked goods, must be declared as an allergen.

ProKote™ non-allergenic release agents have been shown to outperform soy lecithin-based products. They also demonstrate excellent heat stability and therefore color integrity of baked goods.

For more information about allergen/soy lecithin-free release agents, contact Avatar at 1-800-255-3181 or visit the Avatar website at www.avatarcorp.com.
