Question ID: 68153
(In an earlier question, I asked how to find a manufacturers list for
flavorings because I was looking for blue cheese flavoring.  I was
provided a nationwide list but it was just a general list and I have
not yet been able to find the flavoring I was looking for.)

In this question, I want to be a little more specific.  I am looking
for peach flavoring (not sweetened)for cold or freezing items. . in my
case, ice cream.  (I have learned that some flavorings are made for
room temp and cooking but  they loose their flavoring capability when
they are added to a cold or freezing item.) Somewhere in the vicinity
of Rochester New York, I understand that there is a company that
manufacturers flavorings that are for cold or frozen products.  Can
you help me locate this company or if not, can you point me to a
company that does manufacture fruit / peach flavoring for
cold/freezing products?

While I am working on your Acura seat question, I noticed this
question and contacted (by telephone) a supplier I was familiar with
who sells extracts.  They indicated that they were aware of a peach
concentrate manufacturer who sells to speciatly ice cream shops. This
manufacturer only sells to wholesales but my contact was willing to
inquire to see if he could purchase the concentrate and then retail it
to you....I confirmed my request in an email and hope to hear the
answer a bit later in the week.  If any other researcher can answer
directly, please do so and I'll add my information in a comment.

I called the Max & Mina's and was informed that they sell ice cream
not flavorings so this did not lead anywhere.  Do you have any other
ideas?  I blieve that there is a flavoring company somewhere in the
vicinity of Rochester NY but that is all I know.

Received this response today.  Hope you have time to be patient??

"I have contacted my supplier and am waiting for information and pricing on
the concentrates.  I have found they have 60 flavors of concentrates!  Will
be back in touch when I have received more information."

My contact at the Spice Barn send me the following email today"
"We received the list of ice cream concentrates that are available
yesterday.  There are about 60 flavors.  The concentrates are
available by quart or gallon only.   There are 4 flavors of
peach....Peach Amaretto,  Brandied Peach, Georgia Peach, and Juicy
Peach.  The proportion is 2.5 ounces of concentrate for 5 gallons of
ice cream.  The price for the quarts is $31.49  and the gallon is
We should have the entire list on the website within the next week as
special order items.
Let me know if you need other information."
Spice Barn"

You can access the web site at

If you search on the site, you wil find alcohol based extracts which
are available in small bottles such as the "peach flavoring" listed at
$4.69 for a
4 oz bottle. These extracts are not suitable for making ice cream. 

The one quart minimum order size for the peach concentrate that Linda
will list at the website will make a lot of ice cream but will
probably duplicate that rich flavor you are seeking.

Other sources of peach concentrate offer the product in large
quantities for commercial use.

Another way to accomplish your objective of making peach ice cream is
to take a bag of frozen peaches, chop them finely while still frozen,
add to the ice cream mixture during the mixing process and eat all the
ice cream when done so the peaches do not crystallize again in

Good luck with your project.

Linda has posted the lineup of ice cream concentrates at the Spice
Barn web site.  What a fabulous selection.  The prices are a bit
higher than I quoted in the answer.  Hope you give us a report on your
trial of these ice cream flavoring concentrates....


If I can provide any clarification, please don't hesitate to ask

Hi Seedy - Thanx for your response.  I am waiting to hear about the
peach flavoring or is it concentrate???  I am looking for flavoring
not concentrated peaches.  I want to be able to regulate the
sugar/calorie content and flavorings would have no sugar nor calories,
where concentrated fruit would most definitely be sugar-calorie high. 
Spice Barn orders this from another source and does not have the
ingredient specs yet, even though they have requested them.  They
don't know whether it is concentrated peaches or. . whether it is a
flavoring.  Tell me what you think?  Is it good.  Try this recipe:
1/2 - 2/3 cup egg whites (the pasturized kind from the dairy dept)
1 cup ice water
Handful of frozen peaches and a couple frozen strawberries
(Buy the bags of fresh frozen fruit in the freezer at the grocery)
peach flavoring (experiment)
3 packets of Splenda or the equivelent in sugar
4-5 ice cubes or the equivelent in crushed ice

Blend in a really strong blender
Makes a fabulous morning protein drink or an alternative to that high
calorie dish of ice cream     Thanx Speedy

Great lo

Try  which is a peach
flavoring supplied by Spice Barn.  It appears to be mostly water,
propylene glycol, alcohol, and synthetic peach flavoring.  "The Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified propylene glycol as an
additive that is “generally recognized as safe” for use in food. It is
used to absorb extra water and maintain moisture in certain medicines,
cosmetics, or food products. It is a solvent for food colors and
flavors." You may wish to heat the product gently to evaporate the
alcohol..but what the heck....It must be low in calories....since it
is probably used in very small addition to get the peach flavor.

I'll try the recipe tonight for the smoothy drink....Love Splenda

Report tomorrow.


PS: Note the proportion of peach concentrate to finished ice 2.5 oz to five gallons, the caloric content must be
negligible anyway....

Tried the smoothy with the egg whites and with a teaspoon of the peach
concentrate...and some strawberries...Was delicious but needs a bit
more "body"...

Seedy -

The Smoothie should have plenty of body.

1/2 to 2/3rds cup egg whites
1 cup ice water
fairly good size handful of frozen fresh peach slices (this is the
a few frozen fresh strawberries 
about 3 eye droppers about half full - peach flavoring
3 packets of Splenda
4-5 ice cubes crushed or droped in one at a time while blender is
blending the above.

This should have plenty of body.  Try it once more and if you want it
thicker, add a little more ice.  Let me know if this helped.

Try Max & Mina's ice cream. I don't know if they manufacture the
flavoring for sale separately.
