Vanilla Extract is a popular ingredient in foods like Milk Shakes, Ice Cream and other tasty treats, but is this flavor OK to eat on Paleo?
No! Vanilla Extract is an artificial flavoring and NOT Paleo friendly 👎!
Why is Vanilla Extract Not Paleo Safe?
While pure vanilla beans is OK to eat on Paleo the bottles of Vanilla Extract you find at the store are not Paleo friendly. These small bottles are artificial flavoring and contain other non Paleo ingredients like alcohol, sugar, and preservatives.
Unfortunately, there are many baking recipes that break the Paleo diet because of artificial Vanilla Extract, it may seem like a minor ingredient but it can impact your health even if everything else is organic!
