What is the difference between N&A, Natural and Natural (Organic Compliant) flavors?
- Natural and Artificial flavors are composed of substances which are found in nature as well as created in our custom laboratory to closely exhibit the aromatic and flavor qualities found in nature.

- The term natural flavor or natural flavoring means that all of the constituents are derived from natural sources - the original ingredients are found in nature and then purified and extracted.

- Natural (Organic Compliant) flavors are designed for use in organic products.  These flavors are composed of substances that are all found in nature. Such substances as essential oils by law, can only be derived or isolated by methods of distillation, filtration or by means of natural occurring fermentation.
