What is a baking "emulsion"?
Emulsions are water-based, alcohol-free alternatives to extracts. Instead of using alcohol, the flavor is micro encapsulated in natural stabilizers and suspended in water. The encapsulation enables the flavor to not lose its integrity when exposed to high heat.
Which means....Use baking emulsions instead of extracts with better results!
When it comes to flavoring, professional bakers almost exclusively use emulsions over alcohol-based extracts.
- Emulsions have a more potent, robust flavor.
- Won't "bake-out" when exposed to heat
- Alcohol free
- Gluten Free
Use emulsions to flavor:
- Sweet breads & pastries
- Frostings & glazes
- Fondants, fillings, cream centers and other confectionery items.
