Almond extract is a flavorful extract typically made from bitter almond essential oil, water, and alcohol.[1][2] The characteristic flavor comes from the aromatic compound benzaldehyde, which can be derived from the bitter almonds themselves or synthesized in a lab. While bitter almonds contain cyanide-producing compounds, the amount present in commercially-available almond extract is not harmful when used in typical quantities.
