Mother Dairy Ready To Eat Custard  – Detailed Review

Product Details 

Mother Dairy Ready To Eat custard comes in a bright yellow color tetra pack. A 200 ml quantity retails at a price Rs 40/-. This has a shelf life of 6 months. Ideally a single pack is sufficient to be consumed by two people. Plus, if you add plenty of fruits, a single pack would even suffice 4 people. 

For storing and consumption of this custard here are a few things to note down: 

  • It is recommended to store the pack in a cool and dry place
  • Before using the product, ensure that you give it a good shake! 
  • Once opened, it’s best to consume it within 3 days and keep it refrigerated.
  • This tetra package is not suitable for microwave use. However, if you want a hot custard, pour it in a microwave-safe container and heat for 1 minute. 

 The packaging features a tamper proof six layer package. This is a plus point as it helps protect/retain the taste and aroma of the product during storage. 

The key ingredients are as follows : Milk, Sugar, and Milk solids. 

In addition , it also includes Stabilisers (1442, 466, 407), Texturizer [460(i)], Nature identical flavoring substances, Acidity regulator [339(ii)], Iodised salt, and Food colors (102, 110). 

What is Texturizer [460(i)]? Also known as microcrystalline cellulose, it is a naturally non-caloric indigestible dietary fiber. It is used as a texturizer as it helps maintain uniform texture or consistency. Furthermore, it helps prevent the texture from becoming watery. 

The pack mentions there are no preservatives added. 

1/2 of this pack = 1 serving (100ml). The nutritional info per serving is as follows:

Review Process 

We reviewed the product via a simple taste test. There were two ways in which we put Mother Dairy Custard to test: 

  • As is
  • In a fruit medley (how it tasted when combined with different fruits)

Using two different ways to test the product, helped us get a well-rounded picture about the taste and texture. 

Team Mishry’s Verdict 

Color: This custard boasts a rich yellow color reminiscent of a comforting homemade custard made from scratch. It’s not pale yellow.

Texture and consistency: Forget gloopy or watery – this custard hits the sweet spot. Unlike the set custard, that is set in a mould, this is flowy but smooth and creamy. Imagine a classic vanilla pudding, but lighter and airier.

Flavor: Natural vanilla takes center stage, with no artificial aftertaste. Fresh milky notes add to the overall deliciousness. However, be warned – sweetness takes the lead here. On its own, it might pack a punch. After a bite or two, you might find yourself craving a refreshing counterpoint which is where adding some fruits and nuts might help.

A sprinkle of almonds, sliced bananas, diced apples and mangoes or some whole grapes might help tone down the sweetness.
