Properties of Bickford’s All-Natural Candy Flavoring Oils

Derived from high-quality, all-natural flavor sources, our candy flavoring oils are:

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

“Hard Oils” are Bickford Flavors’ version of a highly concentrated flavor. Our all-natural candy flavoring oils are formulated to be eight or more times concentrated than our flavors.

With most of our flavors stemming from 100-year-old formulas, our decision to develop our flavors in water-soluble or oil-soluble base suspensions was made to help you produce the best end product.

Water and oil are more neutral, superior carriers than alcohol - never imparting additional flavor or “baking-out,” as traditional alcohol-based extracts do. In turn, our candy flavoring oils help your application taste and smell better.

  • Hard or soft sweets
