Strawberry essence is a highly concentrated flavour extracted from fresh strawberries onto an alcohol base or synthesised artificially using chemical compounds. It is a pale straw coloured liquid with the aroma of fresh strawberry puree.

Artificial essence is simply chemical mixtures that mimic a natural flavor in some way. The main ingredients are Aliphatic Acids, Aliphatic Aldehydes, Cis-3-Hexenol, Maltol, Ethyl Butyrate, Esters, Ketones and Propylene Glycol USP Grade as solvent.Anything that we smell has to contain some sort of volatile chemical -- a chemical that evaporates and enters a person's nose. Strawberry essence has just one or a few dominant chemical components (usually esters) that carry the bulk of the taste/smell signal.Strawberry essence is an easy way to add strong rose flavour to baking products, sauces, ice cream, and beverages.
