Average Maximum Use Levels of Essential Oils in Food & Beverages
When it comes to essential oils in F&B, the adage ‘less is more’ is fitting. According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the average usage levels of essential oils in food and beverages range from less than 1 milligram per kilogram to 50 milligrams per kilogram of the finished product. Same goes to peppermint essential oil, according to Flavouring Extract Manufactures’ Association (FEMA), the maximum allowable use in baked goods such as chocolate bars is 300 ppm. Generally, 1 drop of essential oil is roughly equivalent to 50 ppm. Hence, less than six drops is sufficient for the entire dessert. However, the value varies significantly depending on the type of essential oil, and the specific food being added to. This is to ensure the flavour profiles as well as to maintain the safety standards of final products.
