Natural Vanilla Flavouring
|COMPOSITION||A more or less liquid extract obtained from pods using an extraction solvent (single or mixed), water, ethanol, or isopropanol.|
|Vanillin content||Minimum of 2 g of vanillin per kg (0.2%) and/or use of a minimum of 15% of vanilla pods|
|REGULATIONS (Labelling)||Vanilla extract|
|FRAUD||1/ Artificial vanillin added
2/ Packaging does not show the equivalence in pods
Prefer an "extract" (must have been extracted from the pod) to "natural flavouring" (natural but not necessarily made from the source mentioned).
Easy to use
|COMPOSITION||This is a vanilla where most of the aromatic principles have been extracted. The vanilla is ground and reused (nothing in common with powdered vanilla).|
|Vanillin content||near 0%.|
|FRAUD||The use of the word VANILLA associated with the word SPENT constitutes a fraud within the strict meaning of Circular no. 5387 of 17/07/78 of the Directorate-General for Competition, Consumer Affairs and Prevention of Fraud (DGCCRF) Paragraph 1.1 Vanilla and, in compliance with the Decree of 20 May 1996, vanilla must be correctly processed to develop its characteristic aroma and none of the necessary stages in this process should be omitted ... *(It is not so much its use that constitutes a fraud than the use of inconsistent terms which could mislead the consumer)|
|OUR OPINION||Same colour and appearance as vanilla. Once ground it perfectly imitates the black vanilla seeds. It is primarily a visual marker. Use of flavouring (artificial or natural) to compensate for the lack of taste is essential.|
|COMPOSITION||Sugar + powdered vanilla|
|Vanillin content||Minimum of 4% of vanilla pods.|
|REGULATIONS (Labelling)||Vanilla sugar|
|FRAUD||Little incentive for fraud|
|OUR OPINION||Easy use for a 2 in 1 product.
Value for money
|COMPOSITION||Although vanilla syrup is neither an extract nor an aroma it does copy their composition but generally contains less vanilla.|
|REGULATIONS (Labelling)||It must contain natural vanilla to be able to call itself vanilla syrup|
|OUR OPINION||A lot of sugar and water and only a little bit of vanilla.
A good tasting food product all the same
|COMPOSITION||Product in the form of a more or less viscous paste|
|OUR OPINION||Reserved for professional use|
