Is vanilla flavor the same as vanilla extract?
Pure vanilla extract is made from the preparation of the vanilla plant, which pulls its flavor when vanilla pods are soaked in a solution of both alcohol and water. Alcohol is an essential component of pure vanilla extract, and - to meet the FDA’s definition of a vanilla extract - it must contain at least 35% alcohol by volume in addition to at least 100 grams of vanilla beans per liter.
To give applications sweet, flavorful notes, consumers taste a compound called vanillin, which naturally occurs in vanilla beans.
Vanilla flavor, on the other hand, delivers the classic vanillin taste without the alcohol. Vanilla flavor is an imitation compound made in a lab and is not naturally derived.
What is the difference between imitation and pure vanilla?
Pure vanilla extract is made from only natural vanilla beans, water, and alcohol. Most imitation vanilla flavorings are a mixture of naturally derived (from lignin or wood pulp) or artificially derived (synthesized in a lab) vanillin.
