Small additions of natural raw materials can be very helpful, especially when formulating natural WONF flavors (With Other Natural Flavors). They can provide elusive, hard-to-find notes, and bring the flavor closer to an optimum level of complexity; they can also make a flavor much harder to replicate, especially if the raw materials are a little unusual or unexpected. This article lists some WONF ingredients, which in my experience are especially useful in formulations. All of them are FEMA GRAS listed, and the components listed are either present in significant quantities or contribute significantly to the odor of the raw material. Likewise, the quantities given are all typical (rather than specific), and often have wide variations in practice, even in genuine oils.
