FLAVOURS

The sensory impression of food or other substance, and is determined primarily by the chemical senses of taste and smell. The "trigerminal senses", which detect chemical irritants in the mouth and throat as well as temperature and texture, are also important to the overall Gestalt of flavor perception. The flavor of the food, as such, can be altered with natural or artificial flavourants which affect these senses.

Natural Flavours

The term natural flavour or natural flavouring means the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydroxylate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavouring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional.”

Nature Identical Flavours

Due to the high cost or unavailability of natural flavour extracts, most commercial flavourants are nature-identical, which means that they are the chemical equivalent of natural flavours but chemically synthesized rather than being extracted from source materials.

Artificial Flavours

Anything that we smell has to contain some sort of volatile chemical. A chemical that evaporates and enters a person's nose. The evaporated chemical comes in contact with sensory cells in the nose and activates them. In the case of taste, a chemical has to activate the taste buds. Taste is a fairly crude sense-- there are only four values that your tongue can sense (sweet, salty, sour, bitter) -- while the nose can sense thousands of different odors. Therefore most artificial flavours have both taste and smell components.
