    Default Extract vs Flavoring

    As I am new to all of this, and just reading for now, I'm sure it's been asked but cannot find anything ...
    What is the difference between Food Extracts and Flavorings

    i'll take a stab at this. An extract is just that, it has been extracted from the actual product. A flavor has been formulated using one or several different flavor molecules.

    Good thread...I've wondered about that myself. Like the food flavoring vanilla extract is mostly alcohol so could you put a few drops in your e juice to make it taste like vanilla? I like vanilla and some juice I've gotten just doesn't taste as strongly of vanilla as I would like.

    Unfortunately if anything you're probably just going to taste alcohol if you use vanilla extract. It's just not strong enough for vaping You can buy vanilla flavoring...some better than others.

    Overall flavoring is much more concentrated. An extract may give you a hint of flavor, but a concentrated flavoring by design is meant to be diluted...

    Karen, yes you can use vanilla extract. There are however a few concerns, make sure it only contains ingredients you are comfortable with, it may gunk up the coil on your equipment and from personal experience the gunk on the coil will burn and give off an unpleasant taste.

    Most of our juice is pg/vg mixed with synthetic flavors obtained from flavoring companies like Lorraine's , FlavourArt or Capella. Extracts are just what they sound like, chemically extracted flavors from fruits, tobacco, coffee beans etc. They may or may not be further processed after extraction. Then they are mixed with pg/vg to create juice.

    this ? has been asked many times and in different ways. The answer is NO. So I gather it just to weak to be used as a flavor. I did buy some McCormick raspberry extract and tried it. No GO no flavor. AS it has most of the ingredients that the ejuice has. I tried it straight. It will vape and put out vapor. However no flavor..
