In this monthly review of the organoleptic characteristics of flavor materials, senior flavorist Judith Michalski discusses materials ranging from barley, roasted oleoresin, 40% ethanol and carob beans oleoresin (synonym: St. John’s bread), through dandelion root extract (E.U.) (synonym: swine snout) and Juniper berry extract (E.U.), and more.
For example, barley, roasted oleoresin, 40% ethanol will add character to brown flavors like coffee, chocolate, malt, cereal and bread, especially rye and whole wheat. It can also be used to enhance dark notes in whiskey, brandy and beers like ale and stout.
