The importance of herbs and spices in flavor and color applications cannot be overstated, but there are shortcomings as well. The natural extractives of spices and herbs are designed to overcome many of the difficulties inherent in the use of whole or ground plant material in food and flavor applications.

The aroma and flavor produced by the use of plant material varies, depending not only on the variety and source of the raw material, but also on the growing conditions and weather patterns of a given year. This variability makes the consistent application in food products very difficult. In addition, flavor components in plant tissue are unstable, leading to a decrease in quality due to volatility losses, oxidation, isomerization, hydrolysis, and other chemical changes. Plant tissue can also support molds and other types of undesirable microbial contamination.

Spices and herbs require storage under regulated conditions, such as refrigeration, that will minimize deterioration with time. Given the large bulk volume, this can be an expensive proposition. Extractives of spices and herbs are highly concentrated, which simplifies storage conditions and greatly decreases the amount of additive needed in product formulations. They are more stable in terms of flavor strength and have lower microbiological activity.

The biggest advantage of extractives versus dried spices, however, is the increased control of the flavoring agents. A more consistent flavoring agent is available due to the quality control of the extraction process. A broader range of flavor effects is made possible by blending or further processing of the extractives. Natural extractives are divided into essential oils, oleoresins, and products made from these.
