How to beat a protein into a thick foam correctly

The quality of the dishes in which they are included depends on how well the egg whites are whipped. This is perhaps an even more capricious whipping product than cream. In order to prepare a thick protein foam with a mixer or manually, you need to follow a few rules.

How to beat whites into a thick foam

Get a thick foam or, as they often say, beat them to "steady peaks", a few secrets will help:

Proteins should not be beaten in an aluminum bowl, otherwise they will become gray.

The container must be perfectly clean and completely dry. Even because of a drop of fat, the foam may not work.

You need to separate the yolks so that they do not blur and do not get to the proteins.

You can't whip whites with a blender! To do this, you need to use a mixer with a frame nozzle.

Thick foam is easier to get from chilled proteins.

Only fresh eggs are suitable for beating.

Before whipping, add a pinch of salt to the proteins.

Large bubbles mean that the proteins are not beaten enough, and small bubbles that they are whipped too much.
