This is the million dollar question, and a large portion of the answer is the concentration level of each product.
In other words, take a flavor like pineapple.
Our most concentrated form of pineapple would be our pineapple extract, which is like the essential oils of the pineapple. While it does not contain any pineapple fruit in it, you can use it to flavor cakes, cookies, muffins, pies, cheesecakes, chocolates, ice cream – you name it.
Our pineapple compound is slightly less concentrated, but it does contain actual pineapple fruit in the product. It's ideal for cakes, cheesecakes, ice creams, gelato, or any other medium where you would want the actual fruit in your final product.
Our pineapple artisan is slightly less concentrated than our compound, and it's designed for cold applications like ice cream and gelato. Nonetheless, many customers still bake with our artisan products.
Our pineapple swirl would be our least concentrated form of pineapple, and it does contain pineapple fruit. You would use it as liberally as you'd like without worrying about use-percentages.
