"Drawing information from flavor and fragrance suppliers, industry and government organizations, and related texts, this alphabetical guide lists materials, synonyms, and products, including Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA), Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), Council of Europe (CoE), natural status, and supplier information. The flavor materials include current materials cited in the FEMA GRAS lists through the GRAS 26 list and subsequent interim publications, the EU "Union" list of flavoring substances that can be used in food, and the materials in the publications of the CoE, as well as information from the Chemical Sources Association and users and suppliers of materials. The fragrance materials have been compiled from the list of materials that the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials has investigated for safety in fragrance use, the list of substances for which there are standards published by the International Fragrance Association North America/Fragrance Materials Association of the United States, and other materials from companies and suppliers. An alphabetical list of suppliers concludes the guide. Material is updated online, and the website includes information on molecular structure, FCC references, RIFM and FDA references, CoE numbers, European Inventory of Existing Commercial Chemical Substances (EINECS) numbers, empirical formulas, and flash points."

"I was most interested in how useful this resource might be for me if I were looking to source a particular aromatic or perfume ingredient. There is a short introductory section that explains what all the abbreviations and designations are. In some cases, a person must be familiar already with much of the background information such as what is an oleoresin or absolute, what does GRAS mean, etc. The materials are in alphabetical order and quite easy to find and are listed with suppliers. There is also a code for the category of material including natural, nature-identical and artificial flavorings. Natural is derived only from plant or animal sources by physical processes either as they naturally occur or as they are traditionally processed, which is a very important designation in natural perfumery. There is also an indication if the product listed is organic. This would be quite helpful for me to have on my shelf as I pursue new ingredients or new sources of ingredients I already use."
