Unifine has focused on fruits rich in antioxidants as well as flavour for its new Flavouring Paste, made from concentrated superfruit juices, fruit pulp, flavours and pieces. It contains cranberries, elderberries, pomegranate, strawberries and apple concentrate. Its new Superfruit Compound can be used to flavour products such as mousses, ganaches, ice-cream and baked cakes. It can also add a hint of pink colouring to glazes, fondants and toppings, for example.

Unifine said its high viscosity makes it easier to cut and handle, as well as using fruits popular for their nutritional benefits. The compound is available in 1kg pots and has a shelf-life of 24 months.

The ingredients firm has also launched a new Premix Chocolate Fondant, to be used in indulgent desserts. The premix is blended with 300g of chocolate shavings, butter and water, and then stirred for one minute before being placed in dariole moulds and individual pots. It needs to be baked in the oven for around 12 minutes at 210?C, and can be served on a dish with a dollop of cream and dusting of icing sugar. It can also be used in baked goods or frozen desserts. It is available in 2x2.5kg bags with a 12-month shelf-life.
