Custard powder is not dried powdered custard. It is actually a powdered mix used to make a custard, and it is very similar to the type of mix used to make instant pudding in the US. Just combine it with milk, cook to thicken, and you have custard (or pudding)!
Custard powder is primarily made up of thickeners that give the pudding its texture. Cornstarch is usually the biggest component since it is great for thickening liquids, dissolves easily and is almost foolproof. The powder also contains flavourings – vanilla is the one you’re most likely to find in a “standard” custard powder – and a hint of yellow colouring. Yellow colouring gives the custard just enough colour to look as though there are plenty of eggs in it, as most basic custards are thickened with eggs instead of powder.
