Does Queen brand natural almond essence contain almonds???
« on: August 05, 2011, 04:14:08 am »
Help!!! I've just made 3 batch of playdough for my sons class and in the first batch I put almond essence! It wasn't until it was done that I realised that if it contained nuts they wouldn't be able to use it as it's a nut free school. I used coconut essence in the next 2 batches so that's ok! Does anyone know if it contains nuts? It contains alcohol, water, glycerine and natural almond oil flavour but doesn't have a warning about nuts on it!

found this on their website for you :)


NATURAL ALMOND ESSENCE
Our Natural Almond Essence is made from the oil of bitter almond, taken from peach seed kernels. It gives a rich almond flavour to cakes and pastries.
CONTAINS NO ALLERGENS

Hope it helps

Can I ask why (out of curiosity lol) you added the essences?

Not that it is of any real relevance to anything else, but does this mean that there is actually no almond in the almond essence at all?

looks that way Marina, but then again I am not surprised lol

I guess for those that have the allergies and want the flavour it is good for them ... as long as they aren't allergic to peaches I guess  :o

Thanks for that Kathryn, I did look at the Queen website but it threw me when I read bitter almond bit!
I put the essence in cos I thought the kids might like the smell? Maybe it was just me? They will get a bit a shock if they try to eat it with all that salt in it though.
I'll make sure I tell the teacher and maybe show her the website!
Thanks again  ;D ;D

lol that is why I asked as I am sure it would only encourage mine to eat it!! I do love MJ's idea for aromatherapy essences that I only just read on the play dough thread earlier. I am so far behind on my reading  :(
