Flavors are very complex, with dozens or sometimes hundreds of chemicals interacting to create each food and beverage’s unique taste profile. It is important to note that food flavorings themselves do not contribute any nutritional value to the products they are used in and, in some cases, may even pose potential harm. For instance, smoked food, especially, are considered carcinogenic, but are appreciated due to their particular flavor. Sometimes flavors alone are very toxic at higher doses.
