No, dear, "natural strawberry flavour" does NOT come from strawberries. It comes from a bunch of things, like rosehip and tree bark from I forget what tree. Cooked strawberries do not have a smell.

Natural _anything_ flavour usually doesn't come from the object it's emulating.

God, some people.

Puts down his strawberry jam and backs away slowly.

Hey! Speaking of strawberry jam... what happened to your friend and the jar of preserves I've been "hankering" for?

Um... cooked strawberries do have a smell... a sweet fruity one... It may be subtle, but it's there.

Hmmm... really? I know uncooked strawberry has a distinct smell, but I don't smell cooked strawberry...

Re:
Weird... I'm thinking of them stewed... it's mostly a "sweet" smell the way I'm thinking of it. Not an artificial-strawberry flavor.

Artificial strawberry flavouring (like in Starburst candy) is made from yutzing around with "smell compounds" called esthers. I can tell artificial fruit smells.

What they call "natural strawberry flavour" (like Four Season's Strawberry tea) is rosehip, some other berry (mulberry?), tree bark. It smells A LOT like what strawberry should smell like.

I was just jolting someone out of their fog. "Just because it's labelled '100% natural' doesn't mean it actually IS what you think it is and doesn't mean it can't kill you".
