Yes. Some companies put a small amount of alcohol in there product to extend the amount of its expiration date including most vanilla extracts. Hope this helps!

Thank you for that information. Do you where I can get info to verify this?

Yes. The FDA actually requires that there be a minimum of 35% alcohol and 13.35 ounces of vanilla bean per gallon. I found this information on Wikipedia. I'm sure if you contacted the FDA they will verify this claim. Hope this helps! free discount card
