Dawn Foods has expanded its range of fruit compound flavouring pastes with a vegan-friendly lime & mint variant.

A nod to the mojito cocktail, the compound is made with real lime juice concentrate and a hint of spearmint. It can be added to mousses, non-dairy creams, ice creams, fillings and frostings to give what Dawn Foods described as a “delicious summery flavour”.

Like all the fruit compounds in Dawn’s range, the lime & mint paste is made with natural flavours and colours, while pectin, found naturally in fruit, is used as the binding ingredient, making the product vegan-friendly as well. It is supplied ambient in a 1kg resealable tub.

Other flavours in the range include strawberry, cherry, passion fruit and mango. Away from fruit, Dawn also offers coffee shop flavours such as cappuccino, mocha, caramel and pistachio.

Cocktail flavours in baked goods, particularly cupcakes, are growing in popularity as British Baker explores in its feature: ‘Shake up your cakes with cocktail flavours’.
