Do you allow nature identical flavours?

The key is the difference between natural flavours and nature identical flavours.

Natural flavours must be extracted from natural materials. They may not be synthesised chemically. Nature identical flavours are the same chemical compounds as natural flavours but they can be synthesised chemically from whatever is the cheapest and easiest source.

Only natural flavours are permitted. Nature identical flavours, however they are produced, are not permitted in organic foods.
