The Basics: Meringue Powder


Baking & Pastry Essentials

The Technique 

Meringue Powder

Meringue powder is a safe substitute to use in place of raw egg whites in recipes. Formulas generally consist of dried egg whites, cornstarch, sugar, citric acid & stabilizers. Meringue powder is most commonly included in many royal icing recipes & frostings but it may also be added to meringue cookie formulas or pie meringues in place of raw egg whites. It provides a stiff stability to these items in particular. Other recommended uses for meringue powder include adding it to frostings where marshmallow & whipped cream are used to increase a sound structure. Learn how to use meringue powder when decorating Christmas cookies after the baking process.

How To Make Clear Edible Glue With Meringue Powder

Meringue powder has several uses in the bakeshop. It may be blended with powdered sugar & water to produce Classic Royal Icing to flood Christmas cookies or a bit of food coloring paste may be added, then placed in a pastry bag fit with a very small tip to decorate them with fine details. It may also be used with a smattering of water to make a Clear Edible Glue so sparkling sugars & sprinkles may safely be added after the baking process.
