    Yesterday I bought a couple of flavouring from "silver spoon" at sainsburys and wonder if anyone knows the difference between those and the dukan ones.

    The Silver Spoon flavourings contain a small amount of alcohol ("ethanol" on the label) , which is not recommended - but in these quantities normally does not do any harm.

    Thats good to know as the dukan ones are very expensive when on a tight budget - they probably last ages its just the initial outlay that mainly puts me off I think

    I think they are a lot of money for something that you may not like the taste of.

    I don't mind losing £1 or less if I am not keen on a flavouring but the Dukan ones are way too much to take a gamble on.

    I bought the chocolate and hazelnut ones from the Dukan site. They are expensive, and when making flavoured muffins I find myself using quite a lot of it to so that you can taste it in the batches I make. Am close to ordering another batch, but not sure seeing they don't last me that long :(

    The flavourings are OK but I did expect something more! Don't know if I will order more but if I do it will be fruit based flavouring miss fruit like mad :( (not enough to have any though)

    They are expensive but I suppose if we work out what we used to spend on "junk" we can justify it :)

    lol!!;)

    it's not that i don't like banana ( i love banana) but the bottle i got from Dukan had gone off.

    See my thread for Banana flavouring, I had a somewhat interesting email conversation with the Dukan shop about it today. They were so patronising - i've documented the whole conversation on the thread...

    I bought a few flavourings here (not from Dukan shop, from a specialist cookery place). I found they all tasted synthetically "chemical", and I gave them all to Mouse who loves them. So they are obviously not to everyone's taste even!

    Would the da Vinci sugar free syrups be a suitable substitute for the flavourings? I have used these in the past - but only for adding to coffee - but on seeing a short video of someone making Dukan muffins online they used a da Vinci gingerbread syrup - so wondering the difference - is it that they are already sweet?
