Unifine has launched a lime and ricotta cheese fond as part of its Sucrea range. The fond comes in powder form, which then needs to be blended with 1kg of whipped cream and water to produce a Bavarois-style mix for desserts, gateaux and patisserie.

The golden cream-coloured mix can also be used as a base for cheesecake and, once processed, will set into a freeze/thaw-stable finish.
