Mastering the Art of Flavor with Angel Bake Pure Extracts

Mastering the Art of Flavor with Angel Bake Pure Extracts

At Saëna Baking Co., we understand that the secret to culinary excellence lies in the details – specifically, in the flavors you infuse into your creations. Our Angel Bake pure extracts offer a natural, unadulterated way to infuse authentic flavors and aromas into your recipes. This blog will guide you through the best practices for using these extracts, ensuring that every drop adds a burst of natural goodness to your culinary creations.

1. The Golden Rule of Quantity When it comes to pure extracts, a little goes a long way. We recommend using about 3-5 drops of extract per cup of the food item. This measured approach allows the extract to subtly enhance your dish without overpowering it.

2. Crafting Flavorful Beverages For homemade sodas and similar beverages, 2-3 drops of extract per serving should suffice to add that perfect hint of flavor. It’s an easy way to create custom drinks that will delight your guests.

3. Syrup Infusions Enhance your syrups by adding 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of Angel Bake pure extract per cup. Remember to add the extract to your syrup after it has cooled to room temperature for the best flavor retention.

4. The Final Touch with Spritzers A spritzer is an excellent tool for adding a mist of flavor and aroma to your dishes just before serving. It evenly distributes the extract, providing a delicate and sophisticated touch to your final presentation.

5. Timing is Everything in Baking During the baking process, flavors and aromas can diminish. To counteract this, add your Angel Bake extract towards the end of the preparation process. This ensures that the flavor remains vibrant and potent in your finished product.

6. Pairing with the Right Ingredients Experiment with pairing extracts with complementary flavors. For instance, vanilla extract pairs beautifully with chocolate and fruit-based dishes, while almond extract can elevate nutty or fruity desserts.

7. Storage for Longevity Store your extracts in a cool, dark place to maintain their quality and shelf life. Proper storage ensures that the extracts retain their potency and flavor profile for your next culinary adventure.

With Angel Bake pure extracts, the possibilities are limitless. They offer a quick, precise way to add depth and character to any recipe, from baked goods to beverages. At Saëna Baking Co., we’re proud to stand behind our products with a true flavor guarantee, ensuring that each bottle of Angel Bake extract brings nothing but the best of nature’s flavors to your kitchen. Embrace the ease and authenticity of flavoring with Angel Bake – where every drop counts in the journey to culinary perfection.

Understanding Alcohol used in Angel Bake Pure Extracts: Safety and Quality Explained

Understanding Alcohol used in Angel Bake Pure Extracts: Safety and Quality Explained

At Saëna Baking Co., we understand that some of our customers have concerns regarding the use of alcohol in our Angel Bake pure extracts. We’re committed to transparency and educating our customers about our products. This blog aims to address these concerns, explain the role of alcohol in our extracts, and provide peace of mind regarding its safety and quality.

The Role of Alcohol in Extracts

Alcohol is used as a carrier in our extracts to dissolve and preserve the plant based natural essences that provide our exceptional aroma and flavor. It’s a common and safe ingredient in food-grade extracts. Our recommended usage of 3-5 drops of extract per cup of recipe to be flavored.

Alcohol Content: Comparison

Let’s break down the numbers. With 3-5 drops of extract per cup, assuming each drop is about 0.05 ml, the total volume of alcohol used ranges from 0.15 ml to 0.25 ml per cup. Assuming zero evaporation, each cup of flavored food item would contain 142 – 237 parts per million of alcohol.  A light beer, with an alcohol content of about 4% by volume, contains approximately 40,000 parts per million (ppm) of alcohol when consumed fully. This is significantly higher than the estimated ppm of alcohol in a recipe using Angel Bake pure extracts.

Evaporation of Alcohol During Baking

Most importantly, it’s essential to understand that alcohol evaporates almost immediately during the baking process. When exposed to the heat of baking or cooking, the majority of the alcohol content dissipates, leaving behind only the desired flavors. This is a well-documented phenomenon in culinary science, ensuring that the final product contains negligible to no alcohol.  You’d be wise to compare the use of sherry in Chinese cousin or wine in French dishes. 

Alcohol-free Extracts

Traditional extracts, like vanilla or lemon extract, typically use alcohol as a solvent to extract flavors from their source ingredients. In alcohol-free extracts, other solvents like glycerin, propylene glycol, or water are used. Glycerin and propylene glycol are effective in extracting flavors and have a sweet taste, which sweetens and alters the overall taste and flavor profile of the product.  Alcohol acts as a preservative in traditional extracts, giving pure extracts a longer shelf life. Alcohol-free extracts, on the other hand, have a shorter shelf life and require refrigeration or special storage conditions to maintain their quality.

Safety and Quality Assurance

At Saëna Baking Co., the safety and satisfaction of our customers are our top priorities. Our Angel Bake pure extracts are designed to enhance your culinary creations without compromising on quality, health and safety. The use of alcohol is standard in pure extract production and is approved by food safety authorities.  

Conclusion

We hope this explanation alleviates any concerns about the use of alcohol in our Angel Bake pure extracts. Our goal is to provide high-quality, flavorful, and safe products. We invite our customers to continue enjoying the rich, natural flavors that our extracts bring to your favorite recipes, confident in the knowledge that they are using a product that is both safe and of the highest quality.

Benefits Of Using Extracts

Benefits Of Using Extracts

Extracts, are commonly used in baking to add concentrated flavors to recipes. Here are some situations where using an extract can be beneficial:

  1. Intense Flavor: Extracts are ideal when you want to infuse a strong and distinct flavor into your baked goods. Cardamom extract, for example, can provide a concentrated burst of cardamom flavor that might be difficult to achieve using whole cardamom pods or ground cardamom alone.
  2. Consistent Flavor: Extracts offer consistent flavor profiles from batch to batch, ensuring that your baked goods have the desired taste every time. This is especially useful when you’re aiming for a specific flavor balance or intensity in your recipes.
  3. Ease of Incorporation: Extracts are easy to incorporate into baking recipes since they are liquid. You can simply add them to the dough or batter, ensuring even flavor distribution throughout the mixture. This can be especially useful when dealing with delicate batters or doughs.
  4. Precision and Control: Using extracts gives you precise control over the amount of flavor you want to add. By adjusting the quantity of extract, you can achieve the desired taste without altering the texture or consistency of the baked goods.
  5. Time-Saving: Extracts can be a time-saving option compared to using whole spices or ingredients. Instead of grinding or crushing cardamom pods, using cardamom extract eliminates the need for this extra step, making the baking process more efficient.

When using extracts in baking, following the recommended quantities mentioned in the recipe or adjusting to taste is essential. Different extracts vary in strength, so be mindful of the potency of the specific extract you are using.  Angel Bake extracts are known for their purity and strength.  As many of our customers say, a little goes a long way!

Overall, extracts are a convenient and reliable option for incorporating intense and consistent flavors into your baked goods, including when you want to add the unique taste of cardamom to your recipes.

Making Of The Angel Bake Bulgarian Rose Extract

The Rose Valley, also known as the Valley of the Roses, is a region located in central Bulgaria, between the Balkan Mountains to the north and the Sredna Gora Mountains to the south. The Valley encompasses several towns and villages, including Kazanlak, Karlovo, Pavel Banya, and others, and it is renowned for its production of high-quality roses and rose oil. The region’s mild climate and fertile soil provide ideal conditions for growing Rosa Damascena, the species of rose used for the production of rose oil. Every year, at the beginning of June, the Rose Festival is held in Kazanlak to celebrate the rose harvest and the region’s rich cultural heritage. Flowers are handpicked and processed daily. It takes twenty kilos of rose petals to make one gram of rose oil we use to make the best rose extract in the world.
