These are the dried perineal glands of the beaver. They contain castoreum — a food additive usually listed as ‘natural flavoring’ in the ingredient list. Castoreum is the exudate from the castor sacs of the mature North American Beaver, it is a yellowish secretion in combination with the beaver’s urine, used during scent marking of territory. In the USA, castoreum as a food additive is considered by the FDA to be generally recognized as safe, often referenced simply as a “natural flavoring” in products’ lists of ingredients. While it can be used in both foods and beverages as a vanilla, raspberry and strawberry flavoring.
 
 
Also:
Castoreum
 
What it is: Brace yourself—this food flavoring is extracted from the castor sac scent glands of the male or female beaver, which are located near the anus. According to Milkowski, the substance is pretty expensive (think about what it probably takes to obtain it) and is more common in perfume than in actual foods.
 
Where you’ll find it: While it sounds downright disgusting, the FDA says it’s GRAS, meaning it’s “generally recognized as safe.” You won’t see this one on the food label because it’s generally listed as “natural flavoring.” It’s natural all right

Alrighty then!

No one show this to my girlfriend.  She's vegan and something like this could make her stop eating EVERYTHING that has "natural flavors" listed on the package.

She should most definitely be informed.  C'mon show her how much you care!

The New Yorker had an article in their 11/23/09 issue about "Michelle Hagen, a flavorist at Givaudan, the largest creator of flavors and fragrances in the world." It was fascinating.

Thanks a lot. Just read the ingredients from this seemingly healthy Chobani greek yogurt and the last one is natural flavor. Might as well say beaver ass now. Bleh!
