Natural Flavor powders come in many flavors, colors, and styles. As always, flavoring requires some practice and experimentation. Keep notes as you try different quantities.
A general overview of the types of flavors and their uses.
What are Flavor Powders? Flavor powders are the flavoring agent of choice when your finished product must be kept dry, such as a baking or beverage mix. Flavor powders dissolve readily in warm water, and so work well for instant mixes. Flavor powders are also a great choice for baking, as they hold up will under prolonged exposure to heat.
Flavor powders are fairly weak compared to other flavors. Starting usage would be around .25% to 1% by weight of total ingredients, and even up to 5% depending on the application.
Best Applications: Flavor powders are perfect for dry mixes and are even used in some old-school baking applications. Flavor powders are good for: - Smoothies - Baked goods - Dry mixes - Maintaining a pre-made mix for months to come

Overflavoring Your Product If at any time you notice a minty taste on your palate or a medicinal taste, you have over-flavored your product. Or, if you are burping the flavor up an hour or more after you have eaten the finished product then you have probably over flavored it. The trick to making a product taste good is to give just enough flavor to tease the taste buds, without overdoing it. That's what keeps them coming back for more.
