Pyrazine is a chemical compound found in nuts and seeds, which, when extracted, appears as a yellow-brown powder.
This food additive is used in ice creams.
To achieve a flavor resembling bread, Graham Cracker, or popcorn, simply add one or two drops of this additive to your e-liquid.
This product is useful for many gourmet e-liquids and pairs well with tobacco flavors.
The dosage of this additive should be very moderate to avoid overpowering the preparation.
As a general rule, 1 drop per 5ml of liquid is sufficient to subtly interact after steeping.

We've observed that a few drops of pyrazine give a roasted hazelnut taste to tobacco flavors.
Additionally, a minimal dose of Ethyl Maltol tempers the dry aspect of a tobacco liquid.
The confusion between these two substances arises from the frequent use of the abbreviation AP on e-cigarette forums, which actually refers to acetyl propionyl.
Pyrazine is a flavor, while acetyl propionyl is a diketone, a molecule similar to diacetyl, potentially harmful to vapers' lungs, used to provide creamy, woody, buttery, or nutty notes to flavors.
It's important to note that when manufacturers use the abbreviations A or AP, they are referring to acetoin and acetyl propionyl, both of which are gradually being phased out from e-cigarette products for safety reasons.
Some vapers are concerned about this product due to the confusion with diketones.
However, if any danger were to exist, it should be noted that the pyrazine available for vaping is not pure but is diluted to 5% in propylene glycol.
It's worth mentioning that its dosage should be particularly moderate, and vapers typically use around 0.5% of its dilution in a recipe, a minute proportion.
To be honest, there's no direct substitute for this additive.
Its toasted bread flavor is quite unique, even though it may resemble hazelnut, popcorn, or peanut butter at high concentrations.
However, you can try using hazelnut, pecan, or other nut flavors to attempt to replicate it.
These two products are quite different as well.
