Strawberry Flavor - Ingredients

Published on Thursday, 13 June 2013 18:08

This is an example of the many chemicals blended together to create a typical strawberry flavoring.  Keep in mind that all of these chemicals would be listed simply as "strawberry flavor" or "artificial strawberry flavor" on an ingredient list, masking what chemicals are actually in the food we eat! 

We've also included links to some chemical's typical Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) or the US Government's Center for Disease Control Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards Page (CDC Page) for more information about each chemical.
