Concentrated flavorings derived from various foods or plants, usually through evaporation or DISTILLATION. Extracts can come in several forms including solid (as in a bouillon cube), liquid (such as vanilla extract) or jellylike (as with a DEMI-GLACE). They deliver a powerful flavor impact to foods without adding excess volume or changing the consistency. Liquid extracts will keep indefinitely if stored in a cool, dark place. See also  ESSENCES.
