I didn't know if vanilla extracts, lemon juices and store bought spices were cheating with the raw diet? :o Just learning :D

Go with a reputable company/brand such as Frontier (sold in most whole/health/natural food stores and they have a website as well: http://www.frontiercoop.com/products/spices.html
They're not considered "cheating"...just transitional I guess. Many of us use them in recipes. The Frontier brand extracts are alcohol-free too!

When I first went raw, I tossed out all of my spices, etc, and bought Frontier they are excellent, expensive in the bottles, but you can get them at co=ops in bulk, much less expensive, and I just store them in baggies anyway, I go through alot of spices.
I use fresh vanilla beans, instead of extract, the difference is amazing, but frontier does make fresh vanilla extract, and one called vanillin without alcohol, and they also make some other yummy flavors too.
