Traditionally, trifle custard is made using milk, sugar and egg. Although this approach delivers a delicious product, manufacturers can find it difficult to achieve texture consistency. Sticking to these three ingredients alone will also not deliver a product which meets the shelf-life requirements of today’s food industry.
Recent years have seen the evolution of consumer and retail trends, resulting in many different variations of trifle custard. Each is designed to meet the quality requirements of manufacturers, retailers and consumers. Variations include custards which are fresh, UHT, low-cost, luxury or clean label.
