How do you use concentrated flavorings?

The beauty of using concentrated flavorings is all you need to do is add a few drops to your cooking, ice cream, candies, lip balms or other application to enhance its flavor. For high heat applications such as, gummies or hard tack candies, slowly increase concentration - the flavor really gets well embedded. Flavors are affected by other ingredients as well like fats, acids and sugar, so experiment to get the perfect flavor for you.

What do you use flavor oil for?

Flavor oil is meant for fat based or oil based applications because the flavor is able to homogenize with the applications very well. Additionally, flavor oils tend to provide a more intense flavor to applications such as, candies, frosting, and buttercream fillings, to name a few. Flavoring oils and extracts can be easily substituted for one another in most recipes. Since flavoring oils are so much more concentrated, you only need a few drops in place of a teaspoon of extract.

How do you add flavor to white chocolate?

Step 1:

If you buy chocolate chips, there should be directions on the bag on how to melt them. Generally, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave. Add the chips to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 15-second increments, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth.

Step 2:

Add a small amount of the oil-based flavoring and stir. Be sure to taste before adding more flavoring.

Step 3:

Pour the candy into molds. If making bark, spread onto a cooking sheet. Put into the refrigerator too cool.

What is the difference between essential oil and flavor oil?

Aromatherapy applications tend to prefer or require the use of whole, pure, unaltered essential oils. Flavor Oils are similar to fragrance oils. However, fragrance oils are not safe for use in lip care applications. Flavor oils are specifically formulated to be safe for use within lip products when used as directed.

Is flavor oil safe for lips?

The term "flavor oil" is a bit of a misnomer. Flavor oils are really lip-safe fragrances. They smell but do not taste. Flavor oils are used to scent your lips.

How much flavoring do you put in lip gloss?

We recommend adjusting the usage around 1-5% of flavor oils to the lip balm base. To sweeten the lip balm, add 2% of the sweetener to the base – you can add up to 3% of this sweetener in your lip balm. Stir slowly until evenly distributed.
