Traditionally a summer season ingredient, coconut is now established as a popular all year-round flavour, with research confirming that it is a top flavour in the bakery category.  Coconut was used in 40% of new product launches in 2015 and globally has seen the highest growth rate in the past three years*.

Easy to use, Dawn’s Coconut Compound is multi-purpose and can be used to create a range of sweet treats such coconut cakes, patisserie and desserts. With a harmonised dosage of 40-60g per 1000g of cream or batter, it is easy for bakers to calculate recipe quantities and ensure consistency. All compounds also have standardised viscosity for easy application.

The creamy notes of coconut are the perfect accompaniment to classic fruit and chocolate flavours and bakers can achieve great taste with little product needed.
