Artificial flavors

What are artificial flavors?

Artificial flavors are any flavors that are not defined as natural, even if they have the exact same chemical composition as flavors isolated directly from nature.

Examples of artificial flavors?

Caramelized sugar, cooked fruit, and cotton candy flavors; this is a synthetic chemical. Fruity flavor, pineapple odor; traces found in strawberries and kiwis. Produced synthetically. Strong vanilla flavor used in chocolate; it was one of the first (late 19th century) synthetic flavors added to foods.

Here, I provide some considerations for your selection and share a few of my favorites.
