Beef Type Flavor



Because you didn't want the exact (albeit artificial) flavor of beef, but rather only a "beef type flavor" in your prepackaged shelf-stable roast beef and potatoes meal.

Apparently it takes an amazing hybrid of soybeans, corn and wheat to make this happen.  Plus onion powder.

What I am confused by, is what differentiates "beef type flavor" from the next ingredient, "flavoring" - and really, what other flavors do you actually want in there?  Potato? Carrot? Onion?  All those are already in there... plus of course, MSG, for umami nom nom nom goodness.
