Bakers often use extracts to flavor baked goods, and such extracts are often also used to flavor drinks. However, there are many essential oils that can also be used to flavor food items. The powerful oils derived from an item create more flavor and scent than an extract, making them popular for more than just the food and beverage industries. You can use essential oils for more applications than the creation of baked goods. They can also be added to savory dishes, or anywhere else where impactful flavor is needed in food or beverage production.
Essential oils are great for small kitchens as well as for large scale production because of the power packed in each drop. Instead of storing large jars and tubs of powder, smaller bottles of essential oil can be stored because they have just as much of the flavor in the powder in less space. Meanwhile, creating delicious flavors in even larger applications becomes much more efficient through the use of these essential oils. The strength of the flavor will depend on how much you will have to add instead of its powder component, along with when you add it to the recipe.
