Now it is also made from the sap of the Arenga pinnata (sugar palm) and the nipa palm, and may therefore also be sold as "arenga sugar". Palm sugar is made by making several slits into the stem of a palm tree and collecting the sap. The sap is then boiled until it thickens. 183

salt56Salt (sodium chloride) is a flavor enhancer and is one of the few minerals commonly eaten by humans. There are different forms of edible salt: unrefined salt (such as sea salt), refined salt (table salt), and iodized salt. Salt is a crystalline solid, white, pale pink or light grey in color, normally obtained from sea water or rock deposits. Natural sea salt includes vital trace minerals in addition to the sodium chloride. Edible rock salts may be slightly greyish in color due to this mineral content. 24

soy lecithin (E322)1033Lecithin is a naturally occurring mixture of phosphatides. Lecithin is the gummy material contained in crude vegetable oils. It is used in chocolate as an emulsifier. Emulsifying allows the mixing of otherwise immiscible substances, especially in water-in-oil systems to control viscosity, crystallization, weepage, and sticking. 3
star anise2Star anise (Illicium verum) is a spice that closely resembles anise in flavor. 147
stevia2Stevia is a sweetener and sugar substitute made from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana. Stevia's taste has a slower onset and longer duration than that of sugar, and some of its extracts may have a bitter or licorice-like aftertaste at high concentrations. It is a small green plant originating from the border area between Paraguay and Brazil. 189
strawberries4The strawberry (Fragaria) is a genus of plants in the family Rosaceae, and the fruit of these plants. 102
sucanat®4Sucanat is a branded ingredient made from evaporated sugar cane juice. It resembles raw sugar in appearance and taste, though it is slightly less sweet. It is considered to be less refined than raw sugar. 115
sulphur dioxide (E220)3Sulphur dioxide is produced by burning sulphur. It is a colorless gas, used as preservative. It prevents enzymatic and bacterial spoilage of products. It also acts as an oxidizing agent, with bleaching effects. Finally, it stabilizes vitamin C in products and prevents discoloration of white wine. 131
sunflower lecithin76Commercial lecithin, as used by food manufacturers, is a mixture of phospholipids in oil. The source of this is sunflower oil. 163
sunflower oil7Sunflower Oil is the non-volatile oil expressed from sunflower (Helianthus annuus) seeds. Sunflower oil is commonly used in food as a frying oil. 19
sweetened condensed milk1Cow's milk from which water has been removed and to which sugar has been added, yielding a very thick, sweet product. 159
tapioca syrup2A food ingredient produced from the cassava tuber (yuca root). The tuber provides the base to make Tapioca products, such as pellets (pearls), flour, flakes, or the Tapioca Syrup. High in starch, Tapioca Syrup is commonly used in the production of other foods or as a replacement for corn syrup in baked goods. 80
tea20Tea (Camellia sinensis) is an evergreen plant that grows in tropical to sub-tropical climates. The leaves are steeped in boiling water to produce a relaxing hot drink. 85

vanilla1002Vanilla beans are the fruit of the orchid Vanilla fragrans. Regional processing methods significantly affect the quality and profile of the resulting bean flavor. The four most common processing methods - Bourbon, Mexican, Tahitian and Java Indonesian - vary in the length of time beans are grown before picking; duration of drying; and the drying method used, which can include sun-roasting and fire-curing. 9
vanillin49A naturally occurring constituent of the vanilla pod, but not economically feasible to extract it from its natural source. Synthetic vanillin can be made by the oxidation of eugenol, or clove oil. Today, it's typically made from the lignin obtained from cooking and chemical extraction of sulfite water (a waste product of the paper industry). This method requires vanillin to be labeled as artificial flavor. 23
vegetable fats12Vegetable fats are substances derived from plants that are composed of triglycerides. Cocoa butter is about 10 times more expensive than vegetable fat, so adding vegetable fat to chocolate is the easiest way to come up with a cheap but inferior product. 89
vegetable glycerin1Glycerin is a neutral, sweet-tasting, colorless, thick liquid which freezes to a gummy paste and which has a high boiling point. It is a good solvent which aides herbalists in extracting botanical properties from plant materials without the use of alcohol, and it absorbs water from the air which makes it useful in conserving preserved fruit. 111
violet fragrance1A violet is a flower, usually Viola odorata for the purposes of culinary usage. 162
walnuts3Walnuts (genus Juglans) are plants in the walnut family Juglandaceae. The nuts of all the species are edible, but the walnuts commonly available in stores are from the Persian Walnut (Juglans regia). 90
