What makes Debic creams so special?
Every product development at Debic is based on an open and intensive dialogue with you as craftsman or craftswoman. So Debic concentrates 100% on the professional foodservice markets such as patisseries, catering businesses and catering service companies.
In this way, Debic is continually looking for product solutions that offer you added value, and the company is also constantly endeavouring to strengthen and refine its product offering. Frieslandcampina Professional, the company behind the Debic brand, makes not a single concession when it comes to product quality, food safety, safety in the workplace, and the environment. With the ultimate goal of bringing food-safe products of exceptional quality onto the market.
What is UHT?
UHT stands for ‘Ultra High Temperature’, a heating process in which products are exposed to a very high temperature (averaging 140° C) for four seconds. In this way, they become bacteriologically sterile and thus a longer life. The advantage of UHT heating compared to classic sterilisation is a better retention of the product’s original properties including a fresh taste.
Are Debic products healthy?
All Debic products are dairy-based and are made from the best ingredients, which must meet the strictest standards. All the ingredients that we use fall within the international and national legislation with regard to food standards. All dairy ingredients come from quality controlled farms and meet the standard as laid down in our own milk quality control program ‘Focus’.
What are the general conditions under which the Debic products should be kept?
Concerning our UHT products, they always need to be kept refrigerated. In order to allow the products’ properties and characteristics to gain optimum performance, our advice regarding conservation reads: “between + 2°C and + 6°C”. However, some ice cream products can be kept at room temperature (up to +20°C) − if this is the case, it is stated on the packaging. Special conservation conditions apply to our aerosol cans: these can be kept at max. 25°C, but for an optimal result the aerosol should be kept in the refrigerator for several hours before use. Powder products must always be kept in a cool, dry and dark place. Frozen products need to be kept in the freezer (< -18°C). For more detailed info about the conservation conditions per article, please see the specific information per product on this website and the label on the product itself.
What is the latest expiry date of your products?
The expiry date stated on our products depends on the production process and the type of product. In general, you can assume that − starting from the production date − UHT products can keep for at least 3 months, dry products can keep for at least 12 months, and pasteurised products can keep at least 10 days.

How long do your products keep after opening?
As a general rule, we can say that the liquid products can keep several more days after opening, on the condition that they are kept refrigerated. However, this can vary from product to product, and so we refer you to the product information on our site or to your sales representative for more details.
What is the shelf life of my final product after processing and combining with other ingredients?
It’s hard to make a blanket statement about this. Everything depends on the shelf life and quality of the added ingredients. To ensure a shelf life that is as long as possible, all processing should of course be carried out under the most hygienic conditions.
