The on-trend flavour of pistachio is now available as part of the Dawn Foods range of Fonds; cream stabilisers perfect for a variety of dessert applications.

Made with all-natural flavours, the new Pistachio Fond stabilises, colours and flavours lightly whipped dairy or non-dairy cream to create a set mousse in minutes. Bakers simply need to mix 200g Dawn® Pistachio Fond with 200g water (at 20°C) and gradually fold in 1000g whipped fresh cream. The versatile mousse can be used in many applications from topping cupcakes and muffins, layering in gateaux and cheesecakes, filling sponges and choux pastry, topping tarts and sandwiching puff pastry.

With it’s all year round seasonality, pistachio flavour adds value and appeal to sweet bakery ranges, with the new Dawn Fond featuring real pieces of pistachio for added texture and a delicious, authentic finish. Popular flavour combinations for bakers and chefs to try include pistachio paired with zingy lime and lemon, sharp cranberry, raspberry, creamy chocolate, elderflower or fragrant rosewater.

Dawn Foods also offers many other Fonds in its range, all of which have been reformulated to meet consumer demand for more natural products.  These include fruits of the forest, raspberry, lemon, strawberry, peach & passion fruit, white chocolate, cappuccino, ruby orange and a neutral base for flavour addition.

The Fonds are all now quicker to dissolve with a harmonised yield across all products, helping to reduce the time required to create complex patisserie and gourmet desserts and they are also freeze-thaw stable.
