I write this review as a home baker not a commercial baker. I have long looked for a way to add true flavor and scent to my baking but have been disappointed by the standard offerings which seem short on taste, void of scent and often leave a rank after taste. When the products arrived I was excited but concerned as all the info that came with them was geared to large commercial bakers. I did not need to flavor ten pounds of batter, only a single cake! I reviewed the data, and came to the conclusion that there was no way to accurately measure using the supplied data. I dropped back to the old school of trial and error, starting with the smallest unit of measure I had 1/8 tsp and went from there. I opted to test on ice cream, figured I only lost some cream if things went wrong. Knowing I would lose flavor from the chill I started with 1/8 tsp and continued until I had the flavor and scent I wanted. The desired level of taste came at 1/2 tsp of compound substituted into a recipe that called for 1 tablespoon of flavor. Mighty big difference! The coconut flavor was incredible, the scent devine and no after taste! Tried the same recipe with strawberry & dark chocolate compounds, the substitution was identical, 1/2 tsp. I imagine a substitution pattern will appear for like items as I work with these compounds.. These compounds are incredible, a little goes a very long way. Use them correctly and the results are stunning. Worth the time and money, a great investment!
