What's your flavor?

Post by Mint Sauce on Thu Jan 16, 2014 9:03 pm

Have you ever wondered where artificial raspberry, vanilla or strawberry flavor comes from?

These are the dried perineal glands of the beaver. They contain castoreum — a food additive usually listed as ‘natural flavoring’ in the ingredient list. Castoreum is the exudate from the castor sacs of the mature North American Beaver, it is a yellowish secretion in combination with the beaver’s urine, used during scent marking of territory. In the USA, castoreum as a food additive is considered by the FDA to be generally recognized as safe, often referenced simply as a “natural flavoring” in products’ lists of ingredients. While it can be used in both foods and beverages as a vanilla, raspberry and strawberry flavoring.

Castoreum, what it is: Brace yourself—this food flavoring is extracted from the castor sac scent glands of the male or female beaver, which are located near the anus. According to Milkowski, the substance is pretty expensive (think about what it probably takes to obtain it) and is more common in perfume than in actual foods.

The FDA says it’s GRAS, meaning it’s “generally recognized as safe.” You won’t see this one on the food label because it’s generally listed as “natural flavoring.” It’s natural all right read more:

Now there's a lot of natural flavoring in everything which makes me think if there is a beaver farm to harvest all that goodness. Can we get sponsored by that farm so at races if anyone asks we can say "yea the beaver really pushed me to the win!"

Every time I've been tasting beaver and decided to try the anus it never tasted of vanilla, raspberry or strawberry. WTF?
