What’s Natural Beef Flavoring?

More and more of the food and drinks we have consumed over the years have been concocted in a laboratory – which we don’t think is a big shocker to anyone. Check out this great information on natural flavors from Eater.com.

But, exactly how are “natural flavors” made and labeled? And are they lurking in your food?

The American flavor industry is expected to earn an estimated $15.1 billion annually by 2020, an unsurprising number given that at this point, almost all processed foods (and many non-processed foods) include flavor additives. But the term “flavor additives” is deliberately vague. Companies are not required to disclose the ingredients of flavor additives if all components are considered generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) — and most manufacturers decline to get into specifics. If you think of flavorings as the proverbial secret sauce, it makes sense: You would be handing competitors the keys to the tasty kingdom.
