"She knows of another victim who had to cut out her favorite raspberry-filled pastries because the artificial flavoring is made with castoreum, a chemical that comes from the anal scent glands of the North American beaver."
I'd have given up those pastries long ago just from knowing the original source.

That is actually a very common ingredient lol. Pretty much anything that is 'naturally' flavored and vanilla/similar uses that. You've definitely eaten it before without knowing 🤷🏻‍♂️

Correcting myself, apparently it's not as commonly used anymore, but was for a while. Either way, I'd bet we've all had it at some point.

On the news, they showed how the plastic water containers had most of the same chemical chain in it that the vanilla had....they just added to it to make it become completely vanilla.
