New addition to FrieslandCampina Ingredients’ portfolio


FrieslandCampina Ingredients Food & Beverages, formerly known as Kievit, has expanded its whipping agents portfolio with a revolutionary pastry cream powder for bakeries. With this ingredient bakers can easily prepare delicious pastry under all kinds of circumstances. The cream powder yields a very high volume expansion (‘overrun’). This, combined with its versatility, allows bakers to create many different products with just one whipping agent. The innovative Vana®-Monte DP580 responds to two global consumer trends:  consumers looking for multi-sensory experiences and wanting to personalise pastry.

In the bakery industry consumers are no longer looking solely for delicious taste. They want a multi-sensorial experience that engages and integrates all senses, based on the look, mouthfeel, smell, flavour and even sound of food. With the rise of social media, consumers are actively searching for fascinating and unique products that are ‘Instagrammable’. The Kievit Vana®-Monte DP580 responds to this trend by enhancing the pastry’s firmness, creating a smooth texture and sharp swirls in its topping. This luscious appearance, combined with a creamy indulgent taste and smooth mouthfeel, have consumers immersed in their senses. 

Worldwide, consumers are also increasingly looking for personalised food and beverages. This implies products that can be adapted to their personal ideas, taste preferences and nutritional needs. For cakes and pastry consumers prefer a personal finishing touch, something unique which can be shared via social media.

With its versatility, Kievit Vana®-Monte DP580 enables bakers to combine the cream with other ingredients and toppings to give consumers just the cake they want.

Pastry cream powder versatility

Kievit Vana®-Monte DP580 not only offers bakers an ingredient to satisfy their consumers’ need for multisensory, personalised pastry but also delivers excellent efficiency in their shops by providing even more volume and firmness after rewhipping, resulting in no waste – an important takeaway for bakers. Kievit Vana®-Monte DP580 works with both ambient temperature and ice water (or milk) and has lasting stability, even at room temperature. Because of its volume and firmness, it can be easily spread over a cake in seconds – another essential element for bakers. Bakers can create new, delicious recipes such as a ‘Lemon Poppy Pie’ , ‘Black Forest Cherry Trifle’, Doughnut, quark-cakes and many more, the company reported.
