They are often used in processed foods to mimic the taste of real ingredients or to mask undesirable flavors. Natural flavorings can come in many forms, including powders, extracts, or oils. Despite their name, natural flavorings may still contain some synthetic compounds to achieve the desired flavor profile. However, they are generally considered to be a healthier alternative to artificial flavorings, as they are derived from natural sources and are free from many of the harmful chemicals found in artificial flavors.
