Yeast Raised Donuts are a very popular treat in the United States as well as many countries around the world. The ideal Yeast Donut should be soft with a very light texture that holds the sweet glaze without melting the glaze or drying / firming of the dough portion of the donut. Del-Val manufactures an ideal concentrate for use by Midsize to large wholesale bakeries.  Our concentrate is a perfect replacement for standard bakery mixes and bases. A concentrate will allow your bakery to save significant costs over bakery mixes and bases.  We are experts in making ESL yeast raised donuts.  If you are interested in making extended shelf life donuts we have several options to make donuts with up to 60 days packaged shelf life


ESL Yeast Donut Concentrate

Many ask, what is the difference between a yeast donut mix, a yeast donut base, and a yeast donut concentrate? Yeast donut mixes have all the flour and sugar added.  You will only need to add water and yeast to finish the donut dough.  While this is the most popular, this is the least flexible in terms of personalization, and this is the most expensive option. Yeast donut bases will have roughly 1/2 of the flour removed and typically you will add 1 bag of yeast donut base to 1 bag of flour.  While a base does save a bit over the mix, you will still be limited in personalization.  Yeast donut concentrates will have all or almost all flour, sugar and shortening removed.  You can add these easy to source commodities and it will allow you to customize your finial donut and this will offer the best savings.

Yeast Raised Donut Concentrates are an excellent way of making high-quality long shelf life donuts (ESL Yeast Donuts). Our concentrate has no flour, sugar or shortening. This allows you to use your commodities at significant savings. We can assist you in the process of finding the ideal flour to produce donuts. More than likely you already have this flour in your plant! Most of today’s yeast-raised donuts are sold in retail situations due to the severe moisture imbalance of the glaze and the dough. This imbalance allows the water in the dough to migrate to the glaze. This will dry out the dough and melt the glaze. This is the reason that most yeast-raised donuts are sold in more of a retail environment. Typical retail yeast-raised donut shelf life is measured in hours as the donut will degrade significantly in 24 hours. Packaged donuts shelf life is measured in days if you can tolerate the glaze being wet and sticky. We have solved this and it is now possible to make glazed and iced yeast raised donuts with a packaged shelf life of over 60 days. Using our ESL Glaze stabilizer and our esl yeast-raised donut concentrate will result in incredible donuts with extremely long packaged shelf life.  We are the ESL Yeast Donut Experts.

Del-Val Food Ingredients has a unique system that allows bakers to produce a true long shelf life yeast donut. The glaze and the dough will be in balance and the end donut will stay soft and fresh and the glaze will remain dry for months.
