DIFFERENT OAK EXTRACT ORIGINS
A selection of American (Quercus Alba) or French (Quercus Petraea /Quercus Robur) oak extracts marketed in liquid form, fresh or toasted, water or alcohol based.
DIFFERENT LEVELS OF TOASTING FOR DIFFERENT AROMA PROFILES
Depending on the toasting level, certain compounds in the wood are degraded, reducing the structural contribution but enhancing aromatic delivery. Toasting intensity and duration determine the types and concentrations of aromatic volatile molecules obtained. Flawless mastery of these parameters allows us to guarantee you profile consistency.
- Fresh wood extract: coconut, apricot, verbena, white tea
- Toasted wood extract: depending on the toasting level, notes of dried fruit, tobacco, almond and fresh walnuts will develop into vanilla and toasted bread, then into mocha, cocoa, caramel....
