Nature's Flavors Organic Anise Flavor Concentrate is made from 100% organic anise seed. The organic anise seeds are extracted through steam distillation and the essential oil is collected and saved for further processing. Nature's Flavors Organic Anise Flavor Concentrate is made to be water soluble by homogenization with gum acacia and the fresh steam distilled anise oil. The flavor of anise resembles licorice and fennel, but with a slightly sweeter note. Nature's Flavors Organic Anise Flavor Concentrate can be used to flavor ice cream, beverages, sauces, syrups, liquors, cakes, cookies, yogurts, and other dairy products. Additionally, it can be used in cleaning solutions as well. Like many essential oil-based products, anise has powerful anti-microbial properties. Add Organic Anise Flavor Concentrate and to a bucket of water and clean floors and counter tops. It is heat stable and can be baked in cake recipes or cookies to 375 degrees for up to one hour. Organic Anise Flavor Concentrate can also be pasteurized in dairy products and is stable in UHT sytems. Because anise is a sweet flavor, it is easy to over-flavor. Care should be taken to not over-flavor any product. Signs of over-flavoring include a taste on the palate or a minty feeling. When using Organic Anise Flavor Concentrate, you should only be able to taste the finished product for about 3 to 5 seconds after you swallow the product. If you taste it for longer than 3-5 seconds, then you have used too much.
