Clean label products are no longer a fad or a trend - it’s the new norm that is spurring innovation across the food and beverage sector of the country. Clean label has influenced the country's flavors market, and both color and flavor producers have responded with innovation and investments in R&D. Artificial flavorings, such as Benzophenone, ethyl acrylate, pyridine, and styrene are identified as carcinogens, and thus, are being fast replaced by natural flavorings.

Consumers tend to pay more for natural food and confectionery products, and naturally flavored confections provide a higher value proposition for the product and brand. More and more companies, including Campbell’s, General Mills, Kellogg, and Nestlé USA, are publicly committing to remove artificial colorings and flavorings from at least some of their products.
