LorAnn Oils & Flavors
A world-wide name and highly popular for their superior quality products, LorAnn Oils is known for their concentrated, professional strength flavorings and essential oils. The LorAnn product line encompasses a variety of candy making and baking supplies in addition to their many flavoring options: Super-Strength Flavors, Premium Vanilla Extracts, Vanilla Bean Paste, Bakery Emulsions and the Flavor Fountain line of flavorings for frozen yogurt and ice cream. Nearly all food products are certified kosher, contain no added sugar, are gluten-free and are available in retail and bulk sizes.
Add vibrant flavor to your candies and baked goods! Unlike diluted grocery store extracts, LorAnn's extra-strong flavorings are highly concentrated!
The flavorings you will find in LorAnn's "Super Strength" line of candy oils include natural food-grade essential oils (such as Peppermint Oil), flavors made with natural ingredients (such as Pear, Natural), and artificial flavors (such as Bubblegum). Even though these concentrated flavorings are popularly known as "candy oils" - they are not flavors in a base of vegetable oil.
When it comes to flavoring, professional bakers almost exclusively use emulsions over alcohol-based extracts. The flavors are more robust and won't "bake-out" when exposed to heat.
Use bakery emulsions just like you would a baking extract.
1 teaspoon bakery emulsion = 1 teaspoon extract.
What is a baking emulsion? A baking emulsion is a flavor suspended in a base containing mostly water. In contrast, baking extracts are flavors suspended in a base containing mostly alcohol. Our Bakery Emulsions are not compromised by the flavor of alcohol and don't "bake-out" when exposed to heat like an extract flavor. Use anywhere you would a baking extract - in cakes, cookies, cheesecakes, frostings and more.
LorAnn's Madagascar Vanilla Extracts and Vanilla Bean Paste are made using only the finest vanilla beans from the island of Madagascar.
What is Vanilla Bean Paste? Vanilla bean paste is an easy-to-use alternative to whole vanilla beans. Whole beans dry-out quickly and require slicing and scraping to extract the seeds. With paste, LorAnn has done all the work for you! 1 Tbs. paste = 1 whole vanilla bean.
Mexican Vanilla Extract is sourced from beans grown in the rich soil and tropical climate of Mexico - where the vanilla bean originated. Vanilla from Mexico is often described as the finest in the world. Try it and find out why!
Tahitian Vanilla Extract - Beans grown in Tahiti have a lovely cherry-like flavor and aroma. The LorAnn Tahitian Vanilla Extract is 2-fold and contains double the vanilla extractives - giving you extra vanilla flavor in every teaspoon.
LorAnn also offers two great-tasting baking vanillas for the budget-conscious baker: Clear Vanilla (helps keep cakes & icings white!) and 2- Fold Velvet Cream Vanilla.
