I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I just made the mistake of using this extract before researching glycerin, and finding out it is nothing but sugar. Glycerin feeds yeast, so it is a no go. I just found pure vanilla bean powder – no additives – on myspicesage.com. Still trying to find a peppermint extract I can use. I am trying to make coconut ice cream, which turned out really good, but now I can’t eat it. Also found out the guar gum used in coconut milk is also a sugar.
