Natural Flavourings and Colours
Our Natural Flavours can be used in so many ways - in baking, soups, drinks, desserts, sauces, meringues, stews, gravies, stirfrys - 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 cake making, cocktails, baking, smoothies, puddings, ice creams, beer, chocolates & popcorn and just about everywhere you could need a big boost of natural flavour
Please note that all flavours and colours are Natural and Essences contain NO SUGARS with only a small amount in some colours (Blue, Black and Green)
Natural colours differ significantly from artificial synthetic colours. They are free from artificial E numbers making them safer to consume, especially for children. However natural colours aren't as bright as synthetic colours and offer a more subtle natural colour.
Please note that the flavours are not sweetened so when used in water, milk or other unsweetened drinks you will have to add sugar or syrup to avoid a bitter aftertaste due to the high strength. In the same way you wouldn't add salt to water and expect soup, or squeeze a lemon in water and expect lemonade, the flavours are enhancers and shouldn't be confused with syrups. Comprehensive notes about what is - and is not - in them can be found at the foot of the page.
Essences are supplied in (Mono)propylene glycol an inert carrier, ethanol (alcohol) - or a combination depending on what provides the best result in terms of flavour and shelf life. The flavours vary significantly in colour and density so if adding to liquid, we highly recommend trying the flavours in small volume before committing to your recipe as our flavours are designed specifically for taste, so colour and density can vary quite significantly due to the natural element of the flavours
Most of our flavours do not contain alcohol, however there are a few that do. Please check the label or drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org for a detailed specification sheet.
