Lemon & Elder Flower Extract, Natural WONF (SC-Item 541BEV) – This flavor no doubt will be on everyone’s list in the next few months since it was chosen as the cake flavor for the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle.

This flavor can also be used in baking and ice cream. One teaspoon is sufficient for your typical cake or cookie recipe. When used by commercial bakers, we recommend a use level of 0.30% by weight and adjust to taste.
