A convenient swiss meringue that is freeze-thaw stable so it can be frozen to be used later when needed. Thanks to the freeze-thaw stable properties of iota carrageenan and its synergy with guar gum, we can enhance the properties of a traditional swiss meringue. If you want to add some flavor to the meringue, just infuse the egg whites first with the selected ingredient.

Whipping Frozen Swiss Meringue after thawing -bowl





- 150 g egg whites

- 150 g sugar

- 0.9 g Guar Gum

- 0.6 g Iota Carrageenan

- Optional: cinnamon sticks to infuse the meringue


1-In a small pot over medium heat, warm up the egg whites, 125 g of sugar and the cinnamon sticks or the selected ingredient to infuse the egg whites.

2-Remove from heat, cover the pot and let it infuse at room temperature for 30 minutes to an hour.

3-Mix the guar gum, iota carrageenan and remaining 25 g of sugar. This will help dispersion of the hydrocolloids and reduce the forming of lumps.

4-Over bain marie (water bath), whisk the egg whites and the sugar-hydrocolloid dry mix. Keep whisking until temperature reaches 55 °C (131 °F).

5-Pour contents into bowl of stand mixer and whip until cool.

6-Freeze for later use. You can portion it if you want to use it in different occasions so you don’t have to thaw the entire batch.

7-Next time you need some swiss meringue, remove it from the freezer, let it thaw and re-whip it.

    Did you mean egg whites instead of yolks when you wrote “whisk the egg yolks and the sugar-hydrocolloid dry mix”?

    • QuantumChef

      yes, sorry! Will fix it.

    oops having a dumb moment – can it still be called a SMB if there’s no butter in it? or is this stored to add butter later?

  • Michelle

    Hi, I don’t have the Guar Gum, is there something else I can use instead?

    • QuantumChef

      Hi Michelle, this recipe was designed with guar gum but you can try with a different thickener such as xanthan gum.

    Would this work for baked Alaska’s, would you be able to burn it?
