Organic caramel syrup mild
In the production of organic mild caramel syrup, organic sugar is heated until it begins to melt and turn brown (="caramelise"). When the desired degree of browning is reached, it is quickly quenched with boiling water, otherwise it would solidify as it cooled. The browning takes place very quickly, which means that this process must be observed very closely. Depending on the colouring (or degree of caramelisation), the organic caramel sugar syrup can taste mildly sweet to strongly bitter. Strong dark caramel syrup is mostly used for colouring and is called sugar couleur. Recipes with mild caramel syrup are characterised by their mild sweetness and "round taste". Caramel sugar syrup, also called caramel sauce, is best suited for vegan diets.
