Breads of the world - Concha

6 Oct 2015


Concha is a sweet bread with a very crunchy and sweet covering. Usually the outer layer is moulded to be in the shape of a shell, and it is often flavoured with chocolate or vanilla. Thanks to a close collaboration with specialist bakers in Mexico, you can easily create the Concha as if it was made over there. All you need is the Tegral Concha mix that contains The latest improver technology to achieve the right texture and a longer lasting freshness and the typical Mexican touch that will enhance the original taste and flavour.
