Natural Fermentone is a very useful contributory ingredient that contributes brown, body, and ripe notes to a variety of flavors. It occurs naturally in many fruits, alcoholic products, and essential oils.
It is not considered a characterizing chemical, because it does not have a characteristic flavor. It is a very forgiving compound, as the flavor intensity increases gradually over the part per million use level range, which makes it easier to use.
