Custard cream mixes

Custard cream is traditionally made with fresh milk, flour, sugar, eggs and vanilla pods. Besides the hot or cold preparation method, custard cream can be made by adding either water or milk to the mix.


What are the advantages of using custard cream mixes?

There are many reasons why a baker or pastry chef would use a mix rather than create custard cream from scratch. The practical benefits include:

  • Time savings: limited preparation steps
  • Constant quality: limited errors and risks
  • Cost optimisation: fast preparation time and limited energy required

What are the variants in custard cream production?

Depending on the finished product, custard cream will require specific characteristics, such as particular taste, color, texture, pumpability, bake and/or freeze-thaw stability. For example, with a Danish pastry it’s important to use a custard cream that is bake stable, while a frozen éclair requires freeze-thaw stability.

To meet these various needs, at Puratos we’ve developed a wide range of mixes covering different applications and properties. They’re tasty, versatile and easy to use. We also offer tailor-made solutions to meet any additional requirements you might have.

We have a range of cold process custards available to meet your flavor and clean label needs.
