For Dry Mix Manufacturing, Powders certainly provide easy scaling, low water content and general disbursement by ‘Dry Blending’.
In Non Dry Mixes, oil or water based LIQUIDS can provide easy disbursement and easy volume measuring.
To some, Liquid is favorable, considering that most flavor components, begin in liquid form.
First let’s briefly understand what is meant by Concentrated…
“That which is considered many times stronger than an average strength Product. (Note: other-than, Pure Vanilla Extract & Pure Oils, there are NO Government Specifications regulating how a company may determine or evaluate a, strength or level, of concentration.)
For example, a Gallon of Ten Fold Vanilla will flavor as much Product as – Ten Gallons of Single Fold Vanilla.
Gold Coast manufactures Concentrated Flavors for Food Processing companies.

Natural W.O.N.F., an Alternative
With Other Natural Flavors, W.O.N.F.’s can be a method of obtaining the best value in Natural Flavors.
‘Direct Concentrates’ of some of the more delicate or subtle Flavors like Blueberry, Strawberry or Raspberry, can get quite expensive and require special handling.
W.O.N.F.’s on the other hand, allow you to obtain a NATURALLY stronger Flavor without the use of Artificial Enhancers, providing you with the luxury of “ALL NATURAL” in flavoring your Product.
Natural, Artificial or Natural and Artificial
In addition to the desired result you want in your Product, your Product Specifications and Labeling may also play a part in determining your Flavoring Requirements.
