Do you need to sanitize flavored extracts (fruit extract or mint extract for example) when adding them to your beer right before bottling? If so what is the method of sanitzation? I read that boiling these extracts will ruin them, but I could not find any info on if they need to be sanitized or not.

Most of the time, they do not need to be sanitized. They are pretty sanitary by themselves when they are packaged.

I agree. I would suggest putting the package (I imagine a small vial with shrink wrap around the top, but I'm sure there are other extract configurations) into a little bowl of sanitizer and sanitizing your hands to keep the lip of the little vial nice and clean.

Otherwise pour the extract I to half a shot of vodka that is in a (previously sanitized) shot glass.
