Frequently Asked Questions
What are flavored oils?
- Flavored oils are concentrated extracts that infuse a specific taste into oils, derived from natural sources like herbs, spices, fruits, or even flowers. They are ideal for introducing distinct flavors to baked goods without altering the consistency or moisture content.
Are your flavored oils suitable for commercial baking?
- Yes, our flavored oils are formulated especially for commercial bakers. They are of high quality, ensuring consistent flavor profiles, and are heat stable, ensuring the flavor remains intact during the baking process.
How do flavored oils compare to extracts or essences in baking?
- Flavored oils are more concentrated than extracts or essences, which means you need less volume to achieve the same flavor intensity. Moreover, oils are fat-soluble, allowing for an even distribution of flavor throughout your baked goods.
Are these oils natural or artificial?
- Our range includes both 100% natural flavored oils derived directly from the source ingredient, as well as some blends which might contain artificial components to achieve specific flavor profiles. Each product's details will specify its natural/artificial content.
Can I use flavored oils in both sweet and savory baked goods?
- Absolutely! Depending on the flavor, our oils can be used in a variety of applications, from sweet pastries and cakes to savory breads and pies. For example, our garlic and rosemary oil is great for focaccia, while our orange blossom oil is perfect for sweet pastries.
How should I store the flavored oils to ensure maximum shelf life?
- For optimal shelf life, store the flavored oils in a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight. Ensure the cap is tightly closed after each use to prevent contamination and preserve freshness.

How can I determine the right amount of flavored oil to use in my recipes?
