In this fatwa:
Responding to your question, Dr. Main Al-Qudah, Assistant Professor, AOU, IAU, SAA, Member of AMJA Fatwa Committee, and Imam, MAS Katy Center, states:
The evaporation of alcohol while cooking or processing the food is not completely guaranteed. Because of that, there might still some taste or flavor in the food. That is why consuming any food or drink containing any percentage of alcohol is prohibited.
On the other hand, the alternative is available; there are many other alcohol-free products.
Allah Almighty knows best.
