"Advertising claims that food is natural, without additives or artificial ingredients including flavorings have taken on great importance in marketing...The first section of this book addresses the importance of flavor and its influence on food acceptability, how to measure flavor and how to ensure that the flavor presented in a food is the optimum for the consumer...Later chapters describe the sources of the important components of flavor explaining how and why there is variation in a particular food. The examination of complex flavors and the application of biotechnology to development of novel natural flavors are also described." (back cover).
