Add a smooth, buttery-vanilla flavor to your baked goods and frostings with this LorAnn Oils butter vanilla bakery emulsion! Preferred by pastry chefs and bakers for their superior results, emulsions are flavorings that are suspended in a water base to deliver richer, more flavorful baked goods than alcohol-based extracts. Because water does not evaporate as quickly as alcohol when exposed to heat, this emulsion will retain its strength and won't bake-out during the baking process, resulting in foods with a more buttery-rich vanilla flavor and aroma. Perfect for high-heat and no-bake applications, use this versatile emulsion to bring delicious flavor to cakes, cookies, and sweet breads as well as frostings, glazes, fondants, fillings, and cream centers. You can even add to ice cream, shakes, and smoothies to create unique, signature menu items! No matter how you choose to use it, this emulsion is sure to become an essential ingredient in your kitchen.

This emulsion is formulated to be the same strength as a traditional alcohol-based extract, allowing you to substitute 1:1 with an extract in any recipe. To use, simply substitute 1 tsp. of emulsion for 1 tsp. of extract when baking, using a slightly less amount for no-bake items such as frosting or whipped cream. Due to its high water content, this emulsion is not suggested for flavoring chocolate or hard candy. For added benefit, this emulsion is packaged in a BPA-free, recyclable PET plastic bottle.

Founded in Okemos, Michigan in 1962 by Pharmacist O.K. Grettenberger, LorAnn Oils was created to fill the niche market of bottling concentrated flavors and essential oils. At the time, LorAnn Oils started their business in Grettenberger's basement, only bottling approximately 8 flavors, and exclusively supplying to pharmacies. As the candy making and confection baking businesses grew around the world, so did LorAnn Oils, moving to a state-of-the-art facility and expanding their product line to include flavorings, emulsions, extracts, and even specialized flavoring for ice cream making. Now, LorAnn Oils products are beloved in over 50 countries around the world, where outstanding and delicious confections are created using their premium concentrated flavors, emulsions, and extracts.

Flavor is very strong and tasty,more like a French cookie. I tried it in plain vanilla cake mix and pancake batter and the flavor was awesome.

My secret ingredient! I use Lorann's Butter Vanilla in equal parts with vanilla extract in all of my butter based baked goods. It really amplifies the flavor of both and provides a wonderful depth of flavors.

Kimi P. from Kimi Pollett on 01/26/2021

I wish I could rank this higher because I loved the flavor this brought to my sugar cookies. I always make them with vegetable shortening, so this extract adds a nice buttery kick that pairs so well with the vanilla. And best of all, it really does emulsify well into just about anything!
