Our natural flavors are essential oils or essences, which contain the flavoring ingredients that are derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material. The primary function of these flavors for our coffee blends is flavoring versus nutritional purposes.
