Can SNAP benefits be used to purchase cooking wines and extracts

unemployed_questionQ) Can SNAP benefits be used to purchase cooking wines and extracts

A) Yes, cooking wines and extracts are eligible for purchase with SNAP benefits. These items are considered un-consumable as alcoholic beverages. Because they contain very large amounts of added salt, the product is undrinkable as a standalone beverage. As such, cooking wines and extracts are not classified as a beverage product and would not fall under the category of an alcoholic beverage. They are meant for cooking and as such are eligible for purchase.




Please Note: 

Households CANNOT use SNAP benefits to buy:

  • Beer, wine, liquor, cigarettes or tobacco
  • Any nonfood items, such as:
  • pet foods  
  • soaps, paper products   
  • household supplies
  • Vitamins and medicines
  • Food that will be eaten in the store
  • Hot foods
