Title: Lorann Flavoring FAQ
Post by: Breaktru on October 13, 2011, 11:45:45 AM
About Lorann's Flavoring: http://lorannoils.com/product-education/about-our-flavors (http://lorannoils.com/product-education/about-our-flavors)

Do any of your flavors contain diacetyl?
No, none of LorAnn's flavors contain diacetyl.

Good to know. Do any contain acetoin or acetyl propionyl?
Thanks!

LA seems to use a lot of Red # 40 dye. And I am one of the few that has a problem with that.

Dear Mr BreakThru Breaktru
I was wondering if you could start a deal on TFA (The Flavor Apprentice) Also I was reading about how some people shake their mixes up and then let them steep. I have a cool way and I would like to send some pictures if I can figure that out. Shaking them makes my arm get tired.

Shot an email to LorAnn Oils:
Do any flavors contain acetoin or acetyl propionyl?

Today their first response:
"Thank you for contacting LorAnn Oils.  To check for specific additives, we would have to do research on the products item by item.  If you can tell me which products you are interested in, I can have someone research them."

I was going to make a short list of any vanilla, custard or butter flavors to reply with an email, but first see if anyone here had thoughts at this stage...

I just started to DIY and ordered Lorann's oils. Question 1: Do they have PG in them? Question 2: What is a good percentage to mix with.

Yes it is PG based.

20% is the max that "I" use for total flavoring. Start with a lower percentage and work your way up. Your first try should be a small bottle of 5ml or less.

I forgot to post the last email I received from Lorann Oils about my inquiry if any flavors contain acetoin or acetyl propionyl, as started earlier in this thread. From Lorann Oils:

Here's what we have found out so far:

0190 Butter Rum contains acetoin
0310 Vanilla Butternut contains acetyl propionyl
3019 2-fold Velvet Cream Vanilla Extract contains no diketones
3020 Clear Vanilla Extract contains no diketones

We're still waiting on reports on the other vanillas.

I have some year old Loranns all my loranns oils are a year old as of march this year.

I noticed wwhen first purchsed the flavors were very weak and used in upwards of 35% to have  flavor

I shelved all my loranns and opted for other flavorings
Today I first smelled each oil and was blown away by their now pungent aromas equating a mimic of their designation
Banana is now banana, watermelon is amazing like fresh watermelon off the trucks on the side of the road in the 70's
Strawberry as well it was awful and now whoa thats pure strawberry

Extracts take time to mimic flavor and were not exactly using them in cooking mixes

I noticed the dates on my bottles, I got them fresh off the assembly line as my local baker school had picked them up for me
So if used 1-2 year before expiry having a 3-4 year expiry, they should be better than good and fully mutated
 I opened the previous year to allow fresh oxygen then steeping cap closed in a dark cabinet. 
This is how I did it and they smell fantastic. 
They did not smell like this when opened,  they had remnant smell; thats watermelon etc. but it was not strong, now all oils are very sweet and strong smelling..

Watermelon has a much longer shelf life than banana and  strawberry .
I did not care for either juice after initial taste which I thought were good but then they went downhill fast an y juice made with the Loranns but now OMG very good flavors..

I've found that there are other makers that need a much smaller % to make a good juice than L.A's flavors. Also, what a hassle to check up on each you want, to be sure you aren't poisoning yourself! Many marks need only 5-15% of their flavors, and that's surely more positive than over 25%.

Hi! Can anyone share with an experience of smoking marijuana like this https://www.gyo.green/bomb-seeds-thc-bomb-bob-thc-f.html through a vaporizer.
Is it the same as using a bong or not? What are the advantage and disadvantages of using a vaporizer where smoking marijuana?
(whether to buy or not to buy? if yes, then what the best compact vaporizer?) thanks
