Custard Flavor with NO Acetyl Propionyl or Acetoin or Diacetyl
We are pleased to announce we now have a dynamite Custard and Bavarian Cream flavor concentrates that have no controversial butter notes at all. I have spent considerable time formulating Custard and Bavarian Cream. These are flavors we NEVER sold until this month because I wanted a year to reformulate them. I knew many people are vaping the candy flavor, including myself. After a good 12 months I have perfected a nice creamy Custard and Bavarian Cream without the use of Acetyl Propionyl FEMA Number 2841 and without the use of Acetyl Methyl Carbinol FEMA Number 2008 [Acetoin] – in fact I use no Acetyls at all. Custard, if you look at the real life recipe-never calls for butter at all. I began my formula with an examination of the real life recipe.
Since I am on that subject, lets talk about Acetyl Propionyl FEMA Number 2841. I get over 100 e-mails a day asking “You don’t use the custard note do you?” My answer is usually “there are a lot of compounds used for custard.”
If I went further-I would say….Acetyl Propionyl is NOT “just” a “Custard” note it is a “Butter” note and NOT known to flavorists at all as a “Custard” note! What do my flavorist books say?
“Acetyl Propionyl tastes from 1-5 parts per million is “buttery, diacetyl-like, fermented dairy, creamy, popcorn”
and nothing about custard. In fact custard notes are mainly expressed in Vanitrope as I know it and I won’t formulate with that one either when it comes to vaping. I am tired of a non-flavorist using a position of power to really confuse people with statements that are wrong or not quite right–for the sole purpose of making millions doing it. And to mesmerize people that Acetyl Propionyl is “just a harmless” custard note, worse, while claiming all their flavors are “FDA Approved ingredients” including that one. Their pretense of “transparency” is nauseating.
So the truth is no flavor ingredient was EVER FDA approved for inhalation and Acetyl Propionyl FEMA Number 2841 is used in far more flavors than “Custard,” is more known as a “Butter” note and it is DANGEROUS! Almost all vape people know or are starting to grasp-diacetyl is naturally created by the “substitutes” relatives of diacetyl the moment they hit heat! Acetyl Propionyl is the biggie. Acetoin is still a close relative of Diacetyl and has the same accusations. In fact, I just learned at the NAFF’s flavorist convention October 2014 that Acetyl Propionyl is about to be banned to less than one part per billion. This ban has NOTHING to do with the ecig market. AP and Diacetyl have been on the chopping block for a long time. Both are expected to be banned and soon to one part per billion. As the keynote speaker described, that is the equivalent to one drop on something the mass of a 747 airplane. Yes, it made me feel better I won’t formulate with it and that I did not sell it to people I know are vaping it. I could have made over a two hundred thousand dollars more in the last year if I did sell custard with Acetyl Propionyl and I would not.
I read the ecigarette forum and thank heavens they are figuring out some of this math for themselves. But I am not a member because I cannot deal with the few trolls owned by the one selling Acetyl Propionyl flavor products. As far as selling “claims” my other personal favorite is flavor being sold as “Diacetyl Free” which offers a natural assumption that it must be safe or that no other compounds are problematic. I am not representing that way because it leaves the wrong impression. I can say our flavors do not contain the butter family of acetyls. But I do not think custard flavor ever needed them as I explained at the start of this post. So I think it was reckless and wanton for people who DO NOT VAPE to be presenting to us things in this fashion and profiting greatly off doing so. They could have reformulated but since they DON’T really manufacture flavor they could have been spending more time with the plant in California that does make it for them and spending less time glossing it over to sell on the internet for inhalation.
Green Tea Flavor Made with Organic Match Powder
On another note I also formulated a wonderful Green Tea flavor concentrate and it is heavenly. It is organic and it is one of our first organic products. It is a beautiful fluorescent green as is any high quality Matcha powder. We also use an expensive organic green tea extract for power in the formula.
100% Satisfaction Guarantee
I never wanted to be “Zappos” shoes where you can return anything-but we had to be. Hundreds of “flavor companies” sprung up on the net over the past few years and it has been unreal. It is almost impossible to tell who really sells the most concentrated flavor. These new entities do not make flavor and they simply dilute and resell having very little control over ingredients. A few buy from me, but never disclose their end use. Because when push comes to shove I know they cannot afford to stand by their diluted flavor and would go broke — I had to implement a “100% money back guarantee” this month and “exchanges ok” (although we will have to discard any exchanges obviously.) So far there have been no requests out of 500 orders. That’s great because I intend to stand behind it. I want customers to know their hard earned money is safe and we wont say “sorry it sucks” but “you opened it.” As one customer said “you have to open it to see what it tastes like!” Hopefully with my new policy those who were making money off pure junk will not be able to afford to stay in the game with your money. It is a great example though, where competition makes buying better for the base consumer.
