Spice Oleoresins are the concentrated liquid from the spices that fully reproduce the character of the respective spice. They consist of the volatile essential oil and the nonvolatile resinous fraction representing the flavor and taste of the spice. They are obtained from the spice mainly by solvent extraction. In food and flavor formulations, spice powder can be replaced by oleoresins providing standardized & consistent flavor, longer shelf life, and no microbial contamination. They are also more economical to use, and have better stability when heated.
