FLAVORS FOR YOGURT, ICE CREAM
The chemists at Mother Murphy’s Flavors found that fruit flavors work well in lower-pH yogurt environments and that the naturally occurring lactic acid enhances and allows the flavor to pop just as a fresh fruit inclusion would — without the worry of stability or textural changes with actual fruit pieces. The addition of a custard flavor to an ice cream base will create a rich, indulgent ice cream without the calories or allergens associated with including egg yolks in the formulation. Try a complex flavor trend such as a smoked peach creme brulee, where timing of the delivery of individual flavor profiles in a layered concept is key. Contact Mother Murphy’s Flavors to assist with your next dairy project.

BANANAS FOSTER FLAVOR
Trilogy Essential Ingredients’ bananas foster-type flavor captures the true essence of the indulgent dessert made of cooked bananas, vanilla ice cream and a caramelized liquor-based sauce made from butter, cinnamon, dark rum, brown sugar and banana liqueur. The dessert is rich in both flavor and history. It was created in New Orleans in the 1950s, back when the city was the hub for imported bananas from South America. As ice cream consumers demand more indulgent flavors in better-for-you recipes, Trilogy says it can help dairy processors create the best flavor for the application. It also has a variety of flavors for other dairy applications, including cheese, yogurt, milk and smoothies.
