Recipes & Mixing
Typical use rate is 1-4%. Thus, 1 part flavoring mixes with 25-100 parts of a flavorless base. Some flavors are so strong that they are best <1%
2-5% is an average starting percentage. Below 1% is effective for some flavors. Many flavors will become distorted if used above 5%. Therefore, we recommend starting at 1% and moving up or down from there.

flavorah flavoring ingredients
Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) food flavoring compounds approved for ingestion.
Flavorah subtracts an additional proprietary list of compounds that may be unsafe or undesirable from these GRAS compounds.
No. Flavorah flavors are 100% tobacco free and 100% nicotine free. This includes all flavors with "tobacco" or "cigarette" in their names. These flavors are created from natural and artificial extracts in a food laboratory.
No. Flavorah is not made or derived from tobacco, and cannot be used directly in an ENDS product or vapor device. Flavorah is compounded using food grade GRAS ingredients. Tobacco Absolute (TA) is an ingredient made for perfume that is derived from tobacco; Flavorah products do not contain this compound.
No, we do not use tobacco (extracted or otherwise) in our flavoring concentrates. The creation of our flavorings – including flavors with "tobacco" in their name – is a time intensive and rather interesting process. During the process, a chemist identifies the characteristic notes that make your brain think tobacco, and then mimics those concentrates from natural and/or artificial sources. Hence, wonderful and concentrated flavorings with the dark earthy and smoky aroma, without having to use tobacco in the extraction process.
Flavorah does not add diacetyl to any of our flavors, however there are traces of natural diacetyl in some of our flavors. This trace occurs from the natural extraction processes. We have identified diacetyl down to 5ppm (parts per million) through GCMS testing. Please see the safety page for detailed analysis.
No, Flavorah does not add this compound, nor have we found any traces after lab testing. Please see our safety information page for more information including 3rd party analysis.
Some flavorings contain traces of acetoin and some flavors are compounded with acetoin. Please see the safety page for a comprehensive listing and PPM.
Yes, a few flavors compounded with natural ingredients will have a very fine particulate in them. We prefer to leave these particulates in the flavorings, due to the removal potentially effecting the flavor potency. When exposed to cold temperatures, chunky crystals can develop or the flavor may separate. While this may seem concerning, it is easy to fix by warming the flavors up and shaking well solves those issues.
No. Ejuice is the liquid that creates vapor in an ecigarette. However, o ur product is sometimes packaged in small bottles with eye-dropper tips similar to the packaging of ejuice. Flavorah is a raw material that can be used by manufactures to make anything that requires food flavoring ingredients. Unlike ejuice, Flavorah:
Is a food grade flavoring products intended for further processing by a manufacture with multiple applications
Is not made or derived from tobacco
Does not contain nicotine
