Have you ever done any baking using copper cookware? Copper reacts with raw eggs, which is the raw material in any pastry or baked goods with a culinary bonus most are not aware of. Baking with copper cookware also yields plenty of health benefits. Read on to discover what they are.
Why Copperware Is Great For Baking
When you whisk egg whites in a copper bowl, some of the copper ions detach from the bowl and bond with a protein in the egg whites called conalbumin.
This forms a strong, stable conalbumin-copper complex that delays any tendency in the expanding egg foam to deflate. Whisking mixes air with the egg, creating bubbles that expand the volume of the liquid up to eight times, as the egg protein uncoils and stretches. The more the protein stretches, the stiffer the beaten egg foam -- up to stiff, peaky points.
So, if you're looking to switch over to using copperware for your baking needs, be sure to consider some of Sertodo's newest copper cookware you should add to your kitchen ASAP.
