We present results on Taylor series expansions for up to fourth order cumulants of conserved charge fluctuations, construct expansions for ratios of these cumulants and discuss their application to the analysis of freeze-out conditions in heavy ion experiments. Our results are based on lattice QCD calculations performed with the HISQ action and quark masses tuned to their physical values.
