Best Lorann Flavors for Vaping
Which Lorann flavors can be used in eliquid?
The Lorann flavors that are used in ejuce must be water soluable for vaping. Natural oil-based Lorann flavors can only be vaped when mixed properly (at a 90% PG solution). Other than that, it is also important to look at the artificial colorings and triglycerides before deciding if a particular flavor is vape safe.
Here is a link to the 2013 Lorann Flavors for Vaping Spreadsheet. This spreadsheet has all the details for every Lorann flavor that is currently sold. It will tell you if the flavor is water soluble, and if it contains water, oil, alcohol, PG, artificial colorings or triglycerides. The spreadsheet also tells you which artificial colorings and triglycerides are used in each flavor so you can make an informed decision about each flavor before using it in an ejuice mix.
Lorann Flavors are ALL food grade safe
(which means safe for consumption). However, they are not pharmaceutical grade safe (which means safe for inhalation) - so you must be careful to watch the ingredients of each flavor before choosing to vape.
Lorann Flavor Ingredients
Which Ingredients are Vape Safe and Which are Not
The things you should look out for in Lorann Flavorings for vaping are artificial colorings and triglycerides. Use your own best judgement in vaping them.
FD&C Blue 1, FD&C Blue 2, FD&C Red 3, FD&C Red 40, FD&C Yellow 5, FD&C Yellow 6 and Caramel coloring are included in SOME Lorann Flavors. Some of these colorings present more risks than others; however, the safest bet is to not vape any Lorann Flavor with artificial colorings.
Caprylic Capric is a triglyceride included in some Lorann Flavors. According to it's MSDS sheet, there are no harmful effects expected at normal temperature; however, Caprylic Capric vapors can cause irritation, coughing or breathing difficulty. Vaping flavors with Caprylic Capric is at your own risk.
Contrary to what I've seen posted in the ecig forums, Lorann buttery and cream tasting Flavors DO NOT contain Diacetyl (which is used to create a butter taste). I have personally verified this with Lorann's (they say that none of their flavors contain diacetyl). Diacetyl is safe to ingest, but not safe for inhalation because it causes Bronchiolitis Obliterans.

More Pick Your Flavors Sets from Amazon
Personally, I think Amazon has a great way to get multiple flavors at a resonable price (plus the added benefit of free shipping). You can purchase the individual flavors directly from Lorann's website but they don't offer the choose your flavors packs there. You can also order flavors from almost any vaping store or website but they mark up their prices to make a profit. The items sold on Amazon are directly through Lorann's (just sold through Amazon).

Did You Know You Can Order Lorann Flavors from Amazon.com? - Order in your choice of flavors
You can buy Lorann Flavors from the vape shops like ecigexpress.com, and madvapes.com but you can also order directly from Lorann's on Amazon.com (which is great because orders over $25 ship free). The 24 "choose your own flavors" pack ships free because it runs around $30.
Amazon also sells a 24 pack that you can choose the flavors on. Again, be sure to take a look at the ingrediants before deciding which are vape safe.
We always love a good recipe.
