The flavors are bold but not overpowering and they have a smoothness to them that you do not find in extracts. When I taste a citrus extract, I find them to be sour and some what bitter, like when you accidently taste the white pith from freshly grated lemon peel. These oils are tart without the bitterness and taste like really ""fresh fruit.""
I have used all 3 citrus oils individually in cakes and cookies. They are all very good, but my favorite is the lemon. I made my favorite lemon bar recipe with the lemon oil
and the lemon flavor was much richer than when I used bottled lemon juice!
These are not extracts and need refrigeration once opened. They have at least a year ""shelf life."" The bottles indicate that they are ""all natural"" and made from ""100% pressed lemons(oranges, or limes).""
The label also indicates that these oils are good in soups and salad dressing(I have only used them in baking). Since these are more concentrated than extracts, less is needed to achieve a superb flavor.
If you are looking for a really ""true"" citrus flavor that does not taste artificial, I highly recommend trying these! You will not be disappointed!
