Whitening / Opacifying dust – E171 Free

Print the sheet

This collection meets the European Commission’s food standards regarding the ban on E171 (titanium dioxide).  Both are easy to use.

Two different products are available:

  • Whitener for buttercream (in a refillable pump)
  • Multipurpose whitening dust/opacifier

Whitener for buttercream:  


 We recommend using one spray per 100 grams of buttercream to cancel out the yellow hue. You might need to use a little bit more depending on the yellowness of your mixture. 

To prevent your buttercream from turning greyish or purplish, it’s important to mix well between each additional spray to avoid too much powder.

You will get a better result by mixing it with a stand mixer (or hand mixer) instead of by hand.

 It will work well in American buttercream, Swiss meringue buttercream, Russian buttercream, Mascarpone frosting, and any butter-based frosting that has a yellow hue.

Multipurpose whitening dust:

AVAILABLE IN JARS OF 80g, 250g, 800g, AND 5kg.

We recommend using 5 to 10 grams per 100 grams of the mixture to reduce transparency.

If you use more than our recommendations, your mixture will tend to be thicker, and instead of having an ivory-white finish, it will turn into a white-grey.
