Just another thank you to the universe. Life is pretty sweet :)
Castoreum is the ooze from the castor sacs of beavers that comes out along with their urine—and it’s used as “natural” raspberry flavor in tons of mainstream products.
But you won’t see this one on the food label—the FDA has determined that it can be listed as “natural flavoring” to hide the truth.
It’s natural all right—naturally icky!
FUCK how do I avoid eating this without knowing then?! This is really really bad. It’s used in vanilla flavour products more commonly says the internet and also in strawberry.
Also look here at all the fucking horrendous and immoral secret fucking stuff in food. How the fuck am I supposed to be vegan and eat any mass produced food at all in a world like this? I don’t have the fucking time or money to make everything from scratch but I guess I’m going to have to start really REALLY researching every fucking product I eat now. UGH
