January 1, 2011/Prepared FoodsMagazine -- Comax Flavors has recently applied its advanced flavor development technologies to creating a new, reduced-cost oak extract that is as clear as water. It can be used anywhere fluid extract, solid extract, distillate or essence is used. According to the company, the TTB Natural Oak Fluid Extract Type Flavor can be used to replace oak fluid extract in most formulations. The flavor can also substitute for some or all of the oak extract in an alcoholic beverage product, where the standard of identity does not apply, with no limitations on usage. This product can be used virtually anywhere an oak impact is desired and is a cost-effective way of giving spirits the sophisticated complexities of aged-in-oak quality.
