Flavoring (or 'flavouring' in UK/Australian English) is a product which is added to food in order to change or augment its taste.

Flavourings can be either natural[?] or artificial[?], and they are added to virtually every foodstuff made in a factory. There are also so-called 'nature-identical' flavourings, which are the chemical equivelant of natural flavours only chemically synthesised rather than being extracted from the original source.

Flavour enhancers are also used to augment the taste of foods.
