  • Give your product a lift with Kells Baking Powders


    There is no doubt that frozen bakery is growing in the food processing sector, especially given the typical challenges of the short life span of products such as bread.

    However developing new products for this sector can offer challenges to bakeries. Our expertise and technology provides bakeries with solutions that address stability and performance factors of products specifically developed for frozen market.

    Choose from the following baking off the shelf baking powders:

    • Red Lion Baking Powder High Power (slow acting) 18% +/- 2%
    • White Lion Baking Powder High Power 18% +/- 2%
    • Star Baking Powder Standard Power 15% +/- 2%

    These three products offer bakers the main grades of baking powder most commonly used in the trade. In addition we would be happy to discuss any particular requirements a customer may have in a baking powder and can work with customers to develop a baking powder that meets performance or nutritional needs.

    We are equipped with a “Chittick Apparatus” which allows us to accurately determine the gas release from baking powders and self raising flours. Our in house expertise, equipment and partnership with leading leavening ingredient manufactures in the UK, Europe and USA allows us to offer the highest quality raising agents. Our Baking Powders made in Ireland and suitable for the Irish baker and palate.

    Halloween Doughnut Treats

    Halloween is now one of the key dates in the bakery diary, with consumer spending of approximately €41 million expected in Ireland during the period.

    There are the usual Halloween favourites that Kells supply like red velvet cake mix and barm brack (Ask for our recipe to adapt Kells bap mix to barm brack). But have you considered using pumkin instead of carrot in our carrot cake mix for a seasonal twist? Or perhaps baking a toffee apple muffin by using our Aldia apple fruit filling and finishing with whipped Millies Toffee icing?

    However, it is in the finishing that you can maximise real seasonal impact. Kells has an extensive range of premium quality cake finishings and decorations which will bring your Halloween range to spooktacular heights!
