• I heard somewhere... I think it was Oprah, lol, that natrual flavours can even be from meat. I duno, something like that.
  • All flavours are made up of aroma chemicals (which are found naturally in all foods). The make-up of processed flavours is determined by analysis of real foods (usually in a gas chromatograph analysis machine). Natural flavours are made from chemicals that have been extracted or derived from plant and animal products, wheras artificial flavours are made up of synthesised chemicals. They are the exact same molecule just with a different source.
  • do food labels have to mention artificial aroma or is the aroma included in the flavoring?
  • "There are three principal types of flavorings used in foods, under definitions agreed in the E.U. and Australia: - Natural flavouring substances: Flavouring substances obtained from plant or animal raw materials, by physical, microbiological or enzymatic processes. They can be either used in their natural state or processed for human consumption, but cannot contain any nature-identical or artificial flavouring substances. - Nature-identical flavouring substances: Flavouring substances that are obtained by synthesis or isolated through chemical processes, which are chemically identical to flavouring substances naturally present in products intended for human consumption. They cannot contain any artificial flavouring substances. - Artificial flavouring substances: Flavouring substances not identified in a natural product intended for human consumption, whether or not the product is processed." Source and further information:
  • it probably means they have both natural and artificial flavors
  • means that some flavors are natural and some are artificial.
