Glamour and passion were two themes on the Unifine stand at Iba. The Decorgel range of gels and toppings provide a translucent sparkling covering to desserts while imaginative fond flavours were included in goods such as Ricotta and Orange and Honey flavour cookies. New premixes, fonds flavours and fillings all fed into a ’Passion for Pastry’ theme. However, longer shelf-life and elimination of E numbers also played a part.
Unifine launched a new premix for a chocolate Swiss roll and a range of top-quality jams including damson, plum and apricot. These contain 70% fruit and are freeze-thaw stable.
Unifine also showed a stabilising system for whipping cream, which can go into mousses and icings, and there were several new lines based on a gold and silver theme, which are eye-catching for Christmas or birthdays. These included 2D sugar shapes.
