Hi i was wondering if there is Ethyl Maltol alternative as i don’t have Ethyl Maltol or should i just go ahead and buy some many thanks
I find flavorah sweetness to be the only sweetener I tolerate. Using .2 to .4 %
It is stevia based with an additive to mask the Stevia backtaste. The additive has been discussed as potentially not great, bit I think the exposure levels are so low that it probably does not matter
EM just mutes the hell out of the rest of the mix for me.
Edit: @SmokyBlue says not Stevia based, and the lady knows what the lady knows
Thank you SuperFrog
After I tried Sugar Daddy I don’t use any other sweetener. Not sure what the shipping would be but I have only found it at Wizard Labs. I’m pretty sure you can make it but I don’t know how. Though I think @authormichellehughes might know. She is the one that turned me onto it.
Oh ya, nice to see you @Englishguy
And its all down to you bud thank you dan
Also Stevia based iirc, harder to find than flavorah though.
Thank you so much i never new this site would be so useful
Both suggardaddy and sweetness flv are stevia based. I think flv uses an additive and sugardaddy uses some maltol or so to balance it.
Stevia is a sweetener extracted from the Stevia plant. It is a combination of two compounds in extracted form, if my memory serves me right. Balance thereof can make it taste weirdly bitter.
I happen to know there is more than 2 ingredients in sweetness…
but again, its proprietary… and it’s not stevia based…
Issue is… EM Ethyl Maltol is used for “cotton candy”… or to sweeten or thicken an ejuice…
One alternative is marshmallow. or use a sweetener…
Unless you show a recipe, really hard to suggest an alternative… not knowing how the rest will work.
I think this is based on the flavorah patent on use of Stevia compounds.
I think the expectations are based on https://patents.google.com/patent/US20160128370
I tried them all, from Sucralose, bought, DIY with crystals, EM (I still use, it sparingly… on some mixes but for the malted note… not as a sweetener) Erythritol (diluted in VG) Cotton Candy… Fructose, you name it I used it… But… at today???
FLV Sweetness! … not sucralose, Stevia or fructose based and even if proprietary, I’m confident of the fact that Brendan is very careful on what he sells us, .5 takes you a long way without adding the sickly sugary taste to your mix. but it’s MHO…
Being that I’m about to switch sweeteners (Sucralose currently) this comment comes at a good time. Thank you for helping me make the choice!
I am about to cut processed sugars out of my diet and I hear Stevia is good for helping in the transition or should I say withdrawal?
The first time I tried sweetness, I (thought I) was sure there was stevia in it too. I got that same (nasty) aftertaste from it… it was just a hint and I don’t taste it anymore, so I’m all happy with Sweetness FLV too. No other sweetener needed here either.
If you look over that link that you posted, it’s abandoned. There is components in the compounds that are proprietary. It is not stevia-based. What you linked is not even linked to flavorah, as flavorah does not hold any patents.
you have to make sure that you shake it everytime that you use it. I have had it recrystallize on me at times. Just like with any other ingredients for e-juice, always shake your bottles before using. Out running errands will catch up with you guys later
I also use sweetness in my coffee, about three to six drops in a 8oz mug
I do that with everything, have to make a conscious effort not to do it with my nicotine every time.
Shake your nic too
