Throughout Europe, custards are traditionally consumed as a tasty filling in various viennoiseries and patisseries. The flavour of custards is still very traditional, usually made with boiled fresh milk, cream, and egg yolks. Zeelandia presents a portfolio that consists of a wide range of easy-to-prepare powdered mixes to match industrial bakers’ needs.

Our custard fillings are the perfect filling for your application because: 

  1. We know the importance of the sensory profile, so we adapt the taste and appearance to match your market's preferences in a standard quality, and the texture to be creamy, spreadable, or sliceable as required. 

  2. We can tailor the viscosity to fit your specific production needs, equipment, and application. Whatever firmness, shape/contour stability, or flow properties you require, we can accommodate your needs. 

  3. Our custard powders are suitable to be used in combination with other ingredients. 

  4. We guarantee outstanding freeze and bake stability during the process, as well as stability during the required shelf life.

Our highly customisable powders can have the functionality and taste you are looking for.
