Caramelized onions are add a depth of sweet flavour to foods and breaking down and browning the natural sugars in the onion give it a melt-in-your-mouth texture and rich flavour that add an extra dimension to everything from authentic French onion soup, to fresh cheeses.
The creation of properly caramelized onions takes time: 45 minutes to 1-1/2 hours. The process is difficult and expensive to reproduce in a commercial environment.
Nikken Sautéed Onion Concentrate 2730 allows manufacturers to add authentic and natural caramelized onion flavour, while eliminating the need for this costly cook-step, Nikken have slowly and carefully sautéed sweet yellow onions in vegetable oil, then concentrated to one sixth by volume.
The result is a convenient pourable and pumpable liquid format, supplied in a 20kg tin can.
