So, what is artificial anchovy flavor?

Artificial anchovy flavor is a food ingredient that mimics the distinct taste and aroma of anchovies, a type of saltwater fish often used in Mediterranean and Southeast Asian cuisine. This flavor is typically derived from a combination of natural and synthetic compounds, carefully blended to replicate the savory, slightly briny essence of anchovies. Artificial anchovy flavor is a popular ingredient in various processed foods, such as salad dressings, sauces, and snacks, that require a tangy umami kick. It can also be used as a vegetarian or vegan alternative to real anchovies, providing a similar taste without using animal products.
