What are the "Artificial Flavors" in the product ingredient lists?

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines this phrase as shown below:

"The term artificial flavor or artificial flavoring means any substance, the function of which is to impart flavor, which is not derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof."

Flavor is a combination of taste and smell, so many of these ingredients are odoriferous substances with complicated chemical names meaningless to us laymen. We at Spice Place recommend that if you have a question about an ingredient in a specific product that you contact the products manufacturer.
