General Product FAQs
Yes, Sonoma Syrup products are Non-GMO as are all our ingredients. Our products are Non-GMO Project Verified please see all our products at the Non-GMO Project website here.
We are dedicated to making healthy indulgences for you and your family. We use certified organic ingredients when possible. All Extracts are Certified Organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOFF). We have provided nutritional information for most of our products, so please visit the specific page of the product you are interested in to view the nutritional information.
Our seasonal botanicals, citrus and olive brine harvests vary, so the color of many of our all-natural products may not match the color of the product shown here. This is normal and a result of our artisan small batch production methods.
This may be caused by naturally occurring fruit or botanical oils, pulp or pectin contained in the syrup. Because we are infusing fresh spearmint leaves, fruit, and botanicals this may naturally throw particulate into the syrup. This should dissolve once shaken and is not a cause of concern. For any remaining questions, please email Customer Service at email@example.com
The goal at Sonoma Syru Co. is to produce the finest Simple Syrups, Extracts, and Bar Mixers available. We are artisan small batch and we implement rigorous procedures that ensure top quality at every stage of ingredient sourcing and production. Sonoma Syrup manufactures its products under a Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points (HACCP) operating plan and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) to maximize product safety.
Sonoma Syrup Co. fruit syrups contain the acids from real fruit, which can cause milk to curdle. It is a natural occurrence and does not affect the flavor. A popular technique in coffeehouses is to add Sonoma Syrup to the coffee first, and then pour in the steamed milk. The coffee dilutes the acidity of the syrup so the milk can remain creamy.
There are no allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, fish, shellfish, soy, eggs, wheat) used as ingredients, however, our products are produced and packaged on equipment that may come in contact with wheat, tree nuts, soy, eggs, shellfish, dairy, fish and peanuts so we cannot be 100% gluten-free certain.
All of our Simple Syrups are handcrafted in small batch steam kettles with pure cane sugar from the United States. You can be sure we are artisan and handcrafted. Each fruit flavor or botanical has a handcrafted infusion process. We were the first all-natural syrup company in the United States on the scene in 2001 to NOT use High Fructose Corn Syrup or any preservatives, artificial flavors or colors - and we still never do!
Vanilla Extract FAQs
Bourbon refers to the geographic regions where vanilla beans are grown on the island of Madagascar blended with Tahitian beans which are grown in the South Pacific, French Polynesia and Papua New Guinea. These French origins are how vanilla planifolia, the “classic” vanilla whose flavor profile is the most recognizable, became known as Bourbon vanilla. We blend two geographic regions of vanilla beans to create a blend to support cold and hot culinary applications in the kitchen.
Infusing flavor using the world’s finest vanilla beans from Madagascar and the South Pacific, the leading suppliers of the highest quality vanilla beans, crafted, blended, fair and sustainably sourced since 2002. Bourbon vanilla, the world’s most widely recognized vanilla, is complex and rich. Its dominant characteristics can vary slightly depending on the region in which it is grown. Madagascar Bourbon vanilla is deep and cream, enhancing any ingredient it’s paired with. Tongan Bourbon vanilla is sweeter, and sharper, adding a standout floral note. Indonesian Bourbon is spicy and earthy. Tahitian vanilla is sweet, tropical, and floral—unique and unforgettable.
Pure vanilla extract must contain at least 13-1/3 ounces of vanilla beans per gallon. Our formulas are proprietary, but that is the minimum.
By law, Pure Vanilla Extracts must contain at least 35% alcohol and 13.35 ounces of vanilla beans per gallon. No other “flavoring agents” are allowed, including vanillin which is artificial. The only flavor permitted is what comes from the vanilla bean. Our premium vanilla beans are ripened on the vine to provide the richest ripe flavor, unlike other producers. Each vanilla bean is hand-selected and naturally cured. No sugar added for simply pure luscious vanilla flavor.
Our premium vanilla beans are ripened on the vine to provide the richest ripe flavor, unlike other producers. Each vanilla bean is hand-pollinated, ripened on the vine, selected, and naturally cured.
Organic Alcohol is essential to our extraction process. We only use Certified Organic Non-GMO cane-based alcohol, not corn-based. It is also gluten-free.
Our cold process method extracts hundreds of vital flavor components to ensure the deepest richest flavor.
"Crush" refers to the crushed vanilla bean seeds we put in our Vanilla Bean Extract Crush® – no gum traganath used here and no need to scrape vanilla beans. We do the work for you. Shake and pour. It is the closest thing to real vanilla pods with tiny flavor-packed seeds.
We do not add any sugar, just simply pure luscious vanilla flavor.
General Extract FAQs
What sets Sonoma Syrup’s apart is the expertise of our vanilla business partner dedicated flavor chemists, a 100-year history of innovation and experimentation, and a passionate love for this beautiful bean grown from an orchid and hand pollinated. Vanilla beans burst with more than 300 flavor components, which only extract can capture. We work with a manufacturer who pioneered a proprietary slow, cold, direct extraction to enhance each of these components. The most important difference is the beans selected for our extracts: vine-ripened and split, and carefully cured. Great beans create great vanilla.
Our manufacturer sources most of our beans from Madagascar, where they work directly with small farmers and artisanal curers. We work with a top company who own a plantation in Fiji, and also source beans from Tonga, Tahiti and Papua New Guinea.
Yes. We use pure and simple raw ingredients, which have not been processed to modify their proteins or DNA, in all our extracts.
Yes. Our Pure Almond and Pure Organic Almond Extracts are allergen-free. They are not derived from nuts. The flavor is extracted from oil of bitter almond, which is derived from stone fruit pits. It is safe for anyone with a nut allergy. Our extract production facilities do not contain any nut or gluten products. We use an allergen-free facility, and make food quality and safety our first priority.
All our Extracts are gluten-free.
Terpenes are a natural waxy compound found in the peel of a citrus such as lemon or orange. The oil of citrus, pressed for extract, still contains these terpenes, which will turn the oil rancid and harsh. By removing them, we guarantee a fresh extract with no rancidity problem and provides a very long shelf life.
