Let’s talk about natural flavors. When something says it has natural flavors, this doesn’t mean it’s vegan.

So, how do they make flavoring taste like something and keep it natural? Well, they use the essence of something like spice, fruit, vegetables, and many other things, including meat, seafood, poultry, and egg. This means that a plant-based veggie burger could contain animal products when they add natural flavoring.

Artificial flavoring has to do with synthetic chemicals that could come from petroleum or other chemicals.

When dry flavors are used versus liquid, you have to use various carriers. The most common carrier is maltodextrin, which is the highest thing on the glycemic index. All of my products use a different carrier—not maltodextrin.

The FDA also does not require labels to indicate what’s in their natural flavoring. Even MSG can be disguised as natural flavorings.
