So, what is added flavor?

"Added flavor" is a food ingredient that enhances the taste and aroma of dishes, making them more delicious and enjoyable. It is a blend of natural or synthetic compounds that mimics the taste and scent of certain foods, such as fruits, spices, herbs, and vegetables. Added flavors come in various forms, including liquid, powder, and paste, and are added to a wide range of food products, from snacks and beverages to soups and sauces. They are used to improve the flavor profile of a dish or compensate for the loss of taste caused by processing or storage. However, it is important to note that the excessive use of added flavors can lead to a negative impact on health, and thus, moderation is key.
