Can I use vanilla extract in a recipe?

This question has been asked and answered by moderators before, but I am glad you asked again because the current answer is different than some answers that can be found on the forum. The answer is No, you cannot use vanilla extract during a Whole30 because all vanilla extract includes alcohol or sugar alcohol. We realize that no one uses vanilla extract to get a buzz, but for the sake of consistency, the latest ruling from Whole30 Central is No.


You can use 100% vanilla bean powder in place of vanilla extract  in a 1:1 ratio in recipes; 1 tsp. vanilla extract = 1 tsp. vanilla bean powder.
