Danish Pastry Concentrate

Danish Pastry Made with Key Blends Concentrate

Danish made with our DanishConcentrated is a very rich yeast raised dough that is laminated with fat to create a flaky, layered, tender pastry. Today's Danish pastries have a typical shelf life of 30 days wrapped in a fin-sealed package. Some companies market Danish pastries made with our concentrate  with a shelf life of 60 to 90 days.

 Sweet dough is very similar to danish pastry except that the dough is not laminated with fat. Both danish and sweet dough type pastries are made on similar equipment and have similar makeups. The main difference is that the danish pastry is flakey and higher in fat. Sweet dough is not flakey and is lower in fat.  Both Danish and Sweet dough can be made with our danish concentrate.

 Over the years, advancements in emulsifier and enzyme technologies have increased the quality and the shelf life of danish and sweet dough pastries. Key Blends can help you achieve those long shelf lives without increasing your costs significantly.
