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.

Delicious, I made this recipe yesterday evening, earlier I bought some shiitake mushrooms, baby bok choy, napa cabbage from an Asian market, I also had a package of tofu left, then I found this recipe, and it was really good, after making them I put them in the refrigerator for a while, even better, and I just finished the leftover 5 minutes ago today, they were even better than yesterday, so this is really an excellent recipe.
