Vanilla Bean Gelato-TFA

Adding to cart… The item has been added

Undiluted concentrated flavoring from The Flavor Apprentice (TFA).  This is a rich vanilla flavor that has no Acetoin, Acetyl Propionyl, or of course, Diacetyl. Instead it uses a lesser known custard note called Butyric Acid. This is the ingredient that other flavor companies are now using to replace Acetoin and Acetyl Propionyl for flavors like Vanilla Custard, and TFA was asked to create similar substitutions. We want to stress that Butyric Acid can also be a source of irritation to the lungs.  It is still a custard note, but usually is only used in traces, as too much of it can give an unpleasant note to a flavor. 

This is concentrated flavoring and must be diluted before use!

    Good sub

    Posted by Tracy Hatton on 29th Apr 2018

    I got this to sub for vanilla custard and vanilla bean ice cream. It is "lighter"? Custards and ice creams feel heavy and leave an unpleasant after taste to me. Also, the need for steeping is greatly reduced. I have not tried it a single flavor yet, so I can't comment on taste. It just adds a light creamy body to mixes. Will be getting the big bottle soon.

    Great ice cream that isnt too rich.

    Like the title says I like this one because it isn't as rich as say, TFA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. The flavor is a nice mild cream with some vanilla. It's a nice mixer and I don't feel it needs to steep to long because I pre steep using a little heat. Little heat goes a long way with flavors. The whole, "steep for a week" thing is often unnecessary. Ain't nobody got time for that.

    well worth trying

    I tried this while searching for alternatives to custard in some mixes and it turned out to be an all time favorite. Smoother and more genuine than all the vanilla ice creams I've tried and not overly rich and heavy like a lot of custards or Bavarian creams. Goes great as a backbone for cereals, with fruits instead of - or with - custards and obviously for ice cream mixes. Or my favorite these days with peanut butter, meringue, vanilla cupcake and a touch of graham cracker.

    kinda ehhh...

    I love vanilla bean so I bought this. I love TFA flavors but this one lacks a punch I was looking for. got to go high on % to get much flavor. Not bad but just not what I was looking for.

    Safest, closest to Vanilla Custard as you can get

    This is my new go-to flavor that I use instead of CAP Vanilla Custard. I have been playing with it constantly and it is truly a great substitute, not to mention AP free! Totally worth playing around with and the flavor is very smooth. It even smells like vanilla custard. I usually pair it with TFA French Vanilla Cream.

    Its OK.

    At a high %15 level it tasted floral and chemical to me. At %10 after 1wk steep it tasted ok. It is different, but I think I prefer CAP VCv2. This should be a fine mixer at %5. Notes: 15% TFA Vanilla Bean Gelato - d2 chem, flor. Try 8%. d3 %10 flor, go lower/time 2/5. d6 mellowed out 3/5 go %6-8.
