The on-trend flavour of salted caramel is now available as part of Dawn Foods’ wide range of Fonds; cream stabilisers that are ideal for a variety of dessert applications.

Halal certified and made with all-natural flavour caramel, the new Salted Caramel Fond flavours, stabilises and gelatinises whipped cream to create a set mousse with consistent colour and texture in minutes.

Bakers simply need to mix 200g Dawn® Salted Caramel Fond with 200g water (min 22°C) and gradually fold in 1000g fresh, whipped cream.

The versatile mousse can be used in many applications from topping cupcakes, tarts and muffins to filling large sponges, choux pastry and mini cupcakes.

With its subtle caramel flavour and contrasting salty taste, salted caramel is hugely in demand and was named the fastest growing flavour in 2015, as well as having the highest market penetration. According to 2016 Innova research, it is projected to keep on increasing as a flavour and there has been definite take up in global bakery companies, supermarket chains, coffee shop giants and food-to-go outlets, which are stocking various salted caramel puddings, desserts, cakes, doughnuts and tray bakes.

Dawn Foods also offers many other Fonds in its range, all of which have been reformulated to meet consumer demand for more natural products. These include white chocolate, cappuccino, raspberry, lemon, strawberry, peach & passion fruit, ruby orange, fruits of the forest, a neutral base for flavour addition plus more!

The Fonds are quick to dissolve with a harmonised yield across most products (with the exception of Quark Fond), helping to reduce the time required to create complex patisserie and gourmet desserts, and they are also freeze-thaw stable.

Dawn® Salted Caramel Fond is available in convenient 2 x 2.5kg bags.
