Q) 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.
