The History of Bird's Custard Powder
Making homemade custard possible for 185 years and counting, Bird's Custard Powder continues to give a delicious smooth paste finish to your delectable sweeties straight from your own kitchen. Bird's Custard Powder is the successful brainchild of Alfred Bird, first concocted in 1837 inside his chemist store in Birmingham. The custard powder came as a solution to Bird's wife's allergy to eggs which happen to be an important ingredient for condensing traditional custard. He first served this egg-free custard plate one evening at his diner and it was so well accepted by his customers that he produced the same recipe for a bigger market.
Bird's Custard Powder became so famous it gave birth to Alfred Bird and Sons Ltd. This product has been passed on to different companies throughout the years and landed with Premier Foods in 2021. Despite the changes in ownership, Bird's Custard Powder remains to commit the same custard magic that everyone in the family loves for over a century.
What are the ingredients of Bird's Custard Powder and why is it pink?
Staying true to its promise of egg-free custard, Bird's Custard Powder is composed of cornflour, salt, Annatto Norbixin color, and flavoring. The cornflour base of this product is the main key to achieving the thick, velvety consistency of the powder mixture. The Annatto is responsible for making this custard pink. It is a natural food coloring that brings subtle peppery and nutmeg-flavored hints. This product does not use artificial colors and is recommended for vegetarians.
Is Bird's Custard Powder gluten-free?
Never fret because Bird's offers a gluten-free custard powder! Premier Foods ensure that the production of all Bird's Custard Powder is made in a highly controlled environment to reduce the chances of spoiling the product with gluten-composed ingredients.
How do you make custard using Bird's Custard Powder?
Have the most talked about lush creamy custard taste and paste texture by mixing sugar and milk with two tablespoons of Bird's Custard Powder in a pot. You can use other milk sources such as goat's milk, soya milk, rice milk, and lactose-free milk as these dairy substitutes can also thicken the custard powder. However, the taste of the custard may also differ when you decide to use these milk alternatives.
Once the powder and sugar are dissolved in the mixture, add two cups of simmering milk and gently heat the blended ingredients until it comes to a boil. Alas! Let your homemade custard grace those irresistibly scrumptious desserts.
