NEVER OVER FLAVOR YOUR RECIPE!
Here are a few rules for starting to flavor a product. Let's say you're flavoring some cookies or ice cream. First start with a small amount such as a .25% up to 1% of total weight of your extract or flavor. Taste the flavor in the finished dough or ice cream. If the flavor tastes good and goes away after 3 to 5 seconds than it's perfect. If this a baked product and it has not been baked yet than you will need to add 10% more to compensate for the loss during baking. When making and freezing ice cream it is also possible the extract will become diluted due to the whipping of air into the product from the ice cream machine and you may need to add move extract to the ice cream mix.
Natures Flavors' Flavor Oils are great when your recipe calls for oil soluble ingredients. These oils are commonly used in the manufacture of lip balm, candle making, natural candies and even Scratch-n-Sniff artwork!
From 0.5% to 3% maximum, by weight of total ingredients in application. A bit of experimentation may be necessary. It is always best to start low and work up to the desired level of flavor, as over-flavoring is fairly easy with these concentrated flavor oils.
Flavor Oils are used in Oil-based products, such as chocolate oil and lip balm oil. Flavor Oils are:
- Oil-based only
- High heat stable
- In some cases, solidified product is natural because of the base
- Start 0.5% to 3% maximum
- Ingredients - natural or organic flavor, carrier oil (*sunflower, canola, coconut)
