What is the standard Brix and Water Activity for Cream Filling? This is not jam, jelly or marmalade. Its a mixture of milk, shortening, sugar and other dry ingredients and no heating process is involved, just pure mixing. I cant find it in the Philippine National Standard and any other international standards, since the only available category is for Jams and Jellies (which is mainly made of fruits). I need to know the value that would not permit the growth of Salmonella and E. Coli.

Hi Cherryl,

 

Given your ingredients listing this product sounds like it will be unique to your company based on your recipe.
