Natural pomegranate flavouring
Dawn Foods has expanded its range of compounds with the introduction of a new all natural flavour Pomegranate Compound that can be used to add the refreshing ‘on-trend’ taste of pomegranate and an attractive hue to frostings and filling creams in cakes and desserts, as well as ice creams, mousses and even milk shakes.
The new Pomegranate Compound joins Dawn’s existing range of 20 compounds flavours such as blueberry, lemon, caramel, mango, passionfruit and cocoa. Many of these existing flavours have also recently been reformulated to provide a whole range of completely natural flavour pastes to the bakery and food production sectors.
Made with concentrated pomegranate juice, Dawn’s Pomegranate Compound – like their other fruit based compounds in the range – uses natural pectin as its binding system.
The majority of Dawn Compounds now also have a harmonised dosage of 40-60g per 1000g of cream or batter making it easier for bakers to calculate recipe quantities and to ensure consistency. All of the compounds also have standardised viscosity for easy application.
“With growing concerns about health and an interest in natural products, Dawn has identified an emerging trend for lighter tasting, fruit flavoured toppings and fillings. Our NPD teams have identified those flavours that are in demand from consumers such as blueberry launched last year and now new pomegranate to ensure that we can provide our customers with the types of products that are in demand from today’s consumer” explains Jacqui Passmore, marketing manager UK & Ireland at Dawn Foods.
“Pomegranate is a leading ‘superfruit’ with many perceived health benefits and is currently very fashionable in all kinds of food products including sweet bakery.”
