The spciality extracts that we sell are a very highly concentrated form of the Purity extracts. They contain no base and are the actual distillates from the innovative carbon dioxide extraction process that is used to extract the flavour from the pods. This process has no by-products because only liquified carbon dioxide is used which evaporates at the end of the process leaving behind only the elements that were present in the vanilla pod in the first place. The extraction process results in 3 layers of extraction, one which is used to make the purity extract, another that is called the 12% extract, and the other the 26% extract.
The 12% and 26% have different properties, but in summary their uses are as for use as food flavouring, in confectionery, in ice creams, cakes, desserts, beverages and liqueurs, for tooth-paste flavouring, for taste improvement of lipsticks, and in perfumery and cosmetics.
The choice of which extract to use is based on the strength, (26% is greater) and also the solubility.
