All-Natural Baking Extracts

Flavor isn’t just an addition, it’s the absolute essence of baking. Whether you’re a small batch baker or large production baking manufacturer, your paramount goal is the same: To tempt the palate and delight the senses.

We encourage all of our baking partners to not only use Bickford Flavors with new, innovative baking applications, but also old classics that perhaps have dormant flavors that would benefit from vigor and a new direction.


With more than 100 all-natural, certified Kosher, premium baking flavors and extracts – many of which come from proven, 100-year-old formulas – we’re certain our flavors will enliven your product and give it the exact flavor consistency it needs.

Properties of Bickford’s Baking Flavors and Extracts

Made from high-quality, all-natural flavor sources, our flavor extracts for baking are:

  • Never suspend in alcohol, with the exception of Pure Vanilla, which contains 35% alcohol by volume
  • Suspended in a water or oil base
  • Highly heat stable
  • Formulated to be stronger and more concentrated than other flavoring methods
  • Free of additional salt and sugar

Water-soluble and oil-soluble base suspensions are more neutral, superior carriers to alcohol. Additionally, they impart no added flavor and do not evaporate as rapidly when exposed to heat. This allows the flavor to taste better, smell better, and not bake-out – as a traditional alcohol-based extract does.

While water- and oil-based extracts are great for almost any application, they’re especially beneficial for high temperature baking processes (heat-stable oil-soluble flavors) and fillings, icings or glazes (water-soluble flavors).
