Not a chef, but really into modernist cuisine. Got lots of friends who are chefs and even a food tech who designs food for the majors down here in Australia. Right into it for like 10 years. Love it and learnt a lot. Lots of crossover between that and this. Would not call myself a foodie because of the image. I love hearty flavourful food, super smooth sauces and glazes over slow cooked meats also a sweet tooth so like my pattisirie & bakery food. Love technical recipes requiring technique.
Yeah just wanted to know if anyone knew what’s in it to do it on the cheap. I’ve sourced ethyritol, sucralose and all my acids (which I had) in powders and make my own solutions. E.g, 6g sucralose from Melbourne Food Depot costs $31.65 that’ll make 120ml or more. 25c a ml whereas a 50ml solution is around 35c not huge savings but good over time. He sells 6g then 160g I’m sure he’ll do me a good deal for more then that. Either way I like to get the powders if I can and diy.
Btw for you Aussies Melbourne food Depot awesome shop full of wondrous ingredients, freeze dried vinegar is the best in making a salt a vinegar home made chip/fries keep them super crisp but still get the vinegar as an example.
Marshmallow is just vanilla sugar, it’s the mouthfeel that gives it the yum. I’d be super interested to see what they’ve used in the marshmallows out there. Extracting would not yield anything I think. Now toasted marshmallow you could maybe do a extract. Then couple that with whatever is in the marshmallow. The flavour companies will be using a synthetic for the toast effect. I have not had it so can’t be sure.
You’ve got me all excited. This is the ultimate in flavour extraction. Rotary evaporator. Cost$$$$$$. You can boil off at precise temperatures and at lower temps because it’s under pressure therefore not breaking down flavinoids. So cool.
I don’t have one. Ahh Jeannie.
If your ever in oz I’ll be happy to do you a slow cooked beef short rib with red wine glaze. Followed by a chocolate volcano pudding. I’ts f’n awesome if I do say so myself. Mental note: post is too long.
Ive never owned one. But that looks like its missing stuff. Can’t see the temp controlled bath the bulb is meant to be in. they should start at about $3000 for a small one was my understanding, and you can find good ones used on ebay but take like 3 months to clean them as you don;t know what they were doing with it ( I suppose you could ask).
D your research and see you never know… Got any chemists? What do they think?
As I understand Stevia if you use to much it gets bitter so perhaps thats why your coffee got that way. I have never used it in vaping but in a cup of unsweetened yogurt one drop is plenty to give it a nice sweet taste
I was going to use it in conjunction with sugar (that I sweeten coffee with) and slowly reduce the amount of sugar I used. But it was a no go for me, due to the bitterness I was tasting. I was only using 1 or 2 drops as a partial replacement at the time.
Try it in citrus fruit vapes at 1 drop per +/- 15 ml and its magic, taste it on your finger its so friggin bitter. 1 drop in a cup of coffee and I went back to agave, sugar, or the flavored creamer. It just isn’t sweet to me. I just get the vinegar/citric acid taste. But I highly recommend it for use as a flavor enhancer in e liquid.
