The CARA’SENS range is expanding, with the launch of a stable cooking caramel specifically for this sector, it offers manufacturers of bread, cakes and pastries a flavorsome solution for filling prior to cooking.

Delicious and effective, it has been especially developed to withstand very high temperatures (>200°C) for several minutes. After cooking, it retains an unbelievably buttery, genuine texture! This caramel is especially suitable for filling : croissants, breads, turnovers, rolls, and brownies. It does not interrupt/ interfere with the mold : no bubbles, drips or holes, and it does not affect the rise of dough or the flakes of pastry. It is stable when frozen.

Caramel remains a global best-seller; this traditional product is the perfect answer to the needs of manufacturers seeking gourmand variations. There is a range of different profiles: Toffee, salted Caramel and salted butter caramel.

Judging by its success, salted caramel is a safe bet. Between 2013 and 2016, an increase of 68% in launches of new products containing it. The USA and the United Kingdom are particularly fond of it with respectively more than 200 and 80 products launched last year (source: GNPD Mintel). Biscuits, desserts, ice creams and chocolate are some of the indulgence categories that have adopted it!

A caramel that is both regional and universal. In Nordic countries, caramel is consumed very salty, as is liquorice, while other European countries prefer it in a subtler form. In France, it is enhanced with a salt of geographical origin, like the salt of Guérande or the Camargue.

For several years now, the ice cream market has continued to develop in Europe and it has held on to its position as a product of pleasure par excellence. Therefore, caramel is a natural fit for this basic trend: 10% of ice cream references launched this year focus on this indulgent flavour (Mintel, 2016).

On the shelves, the pleasure trend is reflected in products that are getting more premium and indulgent. Caramel comes in different flavours, and in some cases, it becomes a range in its own right: Dulce de leche, salted caramel, butter caramel and so on. To make ultra-indulgent products, it can be combined with many other ingredients (dried fruit, biscuits and sweets) in rich recipes, inspired by chocolate makers.

At the same time, pleasure and health go together in ice cream formulated with a yoghurt base or plant milk. Their wide availability targets consumers who are looking to balance their diet without having to compromise on taste. Caramel is the perfect answer for that touch of indulgence!

In its drive to develop innovative solutions, our teams have perfected a dairy free and vegan caramel topping, made without the use of dairy or animal products, intended for the ice cream segment.

In 2016, vegan ice creams accounted for 4.5% of new products launched in Europe compared to 1.5% in 2014 (source: MINTEL 2016). These products are targeting new flexitarian consumers who are trying to balance their input of animal and plant products in their diet.

Our approach consisted of perfecting a caramel with no dairy ingredients that preserved the organoleptic features and the technical properties of a classic caramel.

Milk is replaced by soya proteins that were selected to maintain smoothness. The amount of water is adjusted so as to avoid crystallisation phenomenas and the addition of calcium guarantees the correct formation of gel. Finally, natural flavouring helps to add milk and creamy notes.

As a topping, marbling or in inclusion, it’s sure to please consumers who are eager to find healthy products but aren’t prepared to lose out on taste.

It should be remembered that if your ice cream mix is plant milk based, our Acti’Mask Pro range was developed to accompany the sensory optimisation of cow’s milk substitutes.
