So, what is artificial onion flavor?

Artificial onion flavor is a food ingredient that is designed to replicate the distinct taste and aroma of fresh onions. It is commonly used in processed foods, such as soups, sauces, snacks, and seasonings, to add a savory and pungent flavor without the need for fresh onions. Artificial onion flavor is typically made by combining natural or synthetic compounds that mimic the volatile compounds found in fresh onions, such as sulfur compounds, pyrazines, and thiols. While artificial onion flavor may not offer the same complexity and depth of flavor as fresh onions, it can be a convenient and cost-effective alternative for achieving a desired flavor profile in a wide range of food products.
