Chestnut Flavor Oil, Organic
Nature's Flavors' Organic Chestnut Flavor Oil is specially formulated for use in oil soluble applications. This flavor works well when added to pure chocolate or cocoa bases. It will not separate as long as the application is in an oil soluble form. This Organic Flavor Oil works very well for the chocolatier who is trying to add flavor to a chocolate coating. It will work with dark, milk or white chocolate coatings.
For best distribution of flavor, it's recommended that a small amount of Organic Flavor Oil be added to a small amount of 76 degree Coconut Oil. A good starting usage for all of Nature's Flavors' Organic Flavor Oils is approximately one quarter teaspoon of flavor per one pound of chocolate. If the flavor seems too strong, cut your usage in half. Typically, you should not be able to taste the flavor three to five seconds after you have swallowed the chocolate. It should have a clean feeling and should go away quickly, leaving you with the desire to have more. This is a difficult result to achieve since most tend to overdo it by adding more flavor than needed. In this case, the effect is that you won't want more, even though you don't necessarily identify anything being wrong with the chocolate. Chocolate is a very intense flavor by itself so adding flavor to it and getting the right effect is difficult and takes practice. It is fun to experiment with the chocolate; achieving the perfect flavor profile can be very rewarding. Nature's Flavors' Organic Flavor Oil is true to its name-- having a very sweet, but delicate note. It bakes well in chocolate and also does very well in cookies, cakes and bread. It is very stable for weeks at room temperature and freezes well. All of the Organic Flavor Oils work well in icings and oil based coatings. This Organic Flavor Oil for chocolate can also be added to sauces and dressings and can be emulsified to become water soluble. Due to its very low usage level, there is little or no nutritional value.
