Vanilla extract is a solution containing the flavor compound vanillin. Pure vanilla extract is made by macerating/percolating vanilla beans in a solution of ethyl alcohol and water.
Vanilla extract is the most common form of vanilla used today. Natural vanilla flavoring is derived from real vanilla beans with little to no alcohol.
The maximum amount that is usually found is only 2%-3%. Imitation vanilla extract is usually made by soaking alcohol into wood, which contains vanillin. Vanillin is chemically treated to mimic the taste of vanilla.

I was reading New York Times the other day, and a Greek Salad English Muffin recipe with picture captured my attention. Then I made this Greek salad-one of my favorites, instead of English muffins, I used homemade whole wheat burger bun. So here my sandwich is stuffed with Greek Salad, sounds a good idea, and it tastes amazingly delicious!
