Natural raw materials are extremely useful practical tools, especially when formulating natural WONF flavors. They can provide three useful benefits.
- They may contain notes that are not provided by single chemicals.
- They can add complexity to flavors that are too simplistic.
- They often make the flavor much harder to match.
The following ingredients, in my experience, can be useful in a wide range of different flavor types. They are more than a little off the beaten track and may not be on every flavorist’s shelf, but that only makes them more interesting and more difficult for your competitors to identify and duplicate.
