Sensient extends the indulgent appeal of caramel sauces with high quality extracts and natural flavours

Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, September 2015 – Sensient Flavors introduces its deliciously flavoured caramels range. With bespoke textures and viscosities, the caramel sauces can be used for confectionery products and dairy applications. Their intense flavour sensations give premium products a competitive edge.

In creating its tantalising flavoured caramel sauces, Sensient combines high quality caramel with premium extracts and natural flavours. The caramel sauces can be used as fillings for chocolates, candies, pralines and chocolate bars. For ice creams, yoghurts, chilled and frozen desserts, this new generation of caramel sauces can be used as toppings, ripples and bottom or top layers.

The company has created a selection of nine pralines with flavoured caramel fillings which acts as a ‘Toolbox’ that allows customers to experience the products for themselves. It contains a choice of taste sensations, ranging from outstanding fruit flavours, chai tea flavours and an on-trend salted orange to traditional variants – the sky’s the limit in terms of flavour creativity.

Sensient’s new portfolio has been developed by combining knowledge of caramel, flavouring expertise and cutting edge technology. The surprising twist in this novel range is achieved by refining the sauces with high quality extracts and natural flavours which capture the authentic taste profiles of the raw materials. This sophisticated approach means that the products are especially suitable for premium positionings, allowing for higher margins.

Its annual “Trend to Taste” analysis has enabled Sensient Flavors to translate global as well as local culinary trends into innovative concepts. When fresh cardamom, cinnamon and a hint of ginger extract spice up a rich caramel sauce, a pleasant surprise is guaranteed. Banana blended with fig flavours delivers a rich, sweet and fruity taste sensation, whereas raspberry, cranberry and redcurrant provide fruity and acidic berry notes. Zesty salted orange is a perfect match for the sweetness of caramel. These and other inspiring variations can be sampled in the customer toolbox.

The more consumers seek out new taste sensations, the more exciting flavouring concepts can become. In the indulgence sector in particular, consumers are looking for fun flavours and innovative twists. These on-trend flavoured caramels will capture consumer attention and provide innovative buying incentives”, says Colin Haine, Technical Director for Sensient Sweet Flavors Europe.

Sensient’s new caramel sauces are designed to suit versatile application needs; they can be adjusted in terms of texture and viscosity as well as flavour. All products in the range are ambient stable and can be delivered in a range of bulk packaging formats to suit all manufacturing needs. Sensient also provides fruit-based and chocolate or coffee sauces as well as an extensive variety of inclusions, which can be combined in a multitude of exciting application solutions.
