About

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.
