Our Premium Vanilla Extract is produced from Extract using the Supercritical Fluid Extraction method (SFE) using high pressure carbon dioxide as a solvent. This produces a highly concentrated, purer vanilla extract that is entirely alcohol free which is 100% natural and contains no antioxidants, no technical adjuncts, is not reinforced, not blended, not formulated and not stabilised. It conforms to the definition of natural flavours and EC-regulation 88/388 for natural extracts. Our Premium Extract comes in two strengths which is equivalent to 200g/litre (2 fold) and 400g/litre (4 fold) the ingredients being invert sugar and 0.2% natural vanillin from concentrated Co2 Vanilla Extract for the 200gr/ltr and invert sugar and 0.4% natural vanillin from concentrated Co2 Vanilla Extract for the 400 gr/ltr extracts. The flavour of our Premium Vanilla Extract is virtually identical to that of the original flavour profile of the vanilla pod and should not be confused with the single fold alcohol vanilla extracts which are more commonly available for sale.
Recommended uses: Our Premium Vanilla Extracts are excellent in all uses whilst baking but particularly good for when you are making buttercream for your cakes as it imparts no colour, just a fantastic Vanilla flavour. As a general rule of thumb, extracts are used in any liquid-based recipes.
The recommended dosage for our 200gr/ltr Vanilla Extract is 10ml in 1ltr of end product and for the 400gr/ltr it is 5ml in 1ltr of end product. These can of course be adjusted to your own taste.
The two concentrations 200 and 400 gr/ltr are now also available with the addition of Vanilla seeds which are there for purely asthetic reasons they do not add any additional flavour, they are the seeds which are recovered from the Vanilla Beans which have been used for the Vanilla Extraction process and have very little flavour left in them.
