FAQs

Extracts and Food Colours

What is the shelf life of extracts?

The shelf life of extracts, except Pure Vanilla, is approximately 2 - 4 years. Pure Vanilla has an unlimited shelf life. Always replace the lid on bottles right after use to avoid flavour loss.

How can I remove a food colour:(a) from skin? (b) from kitchen cabinets or floors? (c) from rugs?

a)For skin, try baby oil, thick hand cream or vegetable oil, thickly cover area (avoiding eyes) and leave on approximately 20 minutes. Use dish soap to remove the oily substance they may have to be repeated several times. b) For kitchen counter tops wipe with liquid dish soap and rinse, then if needed use a spray cleanser and rinse with soap and water. If this is unsuccessful, mix 1 tablespoon (15 mL) bleach with 1 cup warm water (adults only) wash area carefully. c) for rugs we recommend calling a professional carpet cleaner.

Using food colours, how do I make the colour black?

Use 5 drops blue food colouring, 1½ teaspoons (7 mL) red food colouring and 1½ teaspoons (7 mL) green food colouring. However, this does not make a very intense black.
