Natural Extracts, Essences and Colours
Our Natural Flavours can be used in so many ways - in baking, soups, drinks, desserts, sauces, meringues, stews, gravies, stirfries - in fact anywhere you want to have just the right flavour (and it's flavour without the bits!!).
We call them liquid ingredients and use them all the time. Our flavours are in use in cosmetics, cooked meats, smoothies, puddings, ice creams, beer, chocolates, popcorn and even fish bait!
Please note that as the flavours are not sweetened so when used in milk or other unsweetened drinks you will have to add sugar or syrup. Comprehensive notes about what is - and is not - in them can be found at the foot of the page.
Please note that all flavours and colours are Natural and can be described as such in recipes and ingredients lists.
