So, what is artificial lemon flavor?

Artificial lemon flavor is a food ingredient designed to mimic the taste of fresh lemons in various food products. This synthetic flavoring is typically made from a blend of natural and synthetic ingredients, carefully calibrated to create a bright, tangy flavor that is highly concentrated and stable over time. Unlike fresh lemons, artificial lemon flavor can be easily incorporated into a wide range of food products, including candies, baked goods, beverages, and savory dishes, providing a consistent and predictable flavor profile that consumers love. Whether you're adding a hint of lemon to your favorite recipe or looking to create a bold, citrusy taste experience, artificial lemon flavor is a versatile and reliable ingredient that delivers on taste and convenience.
