Anonymous asked: Are the volatile compounds in strawberries natural or due to some other reason? I feel like the graphic was trying to insinuate something's wrong with the way strawberry smells.
It’s all totally natural, so nope nothing wrong. Those chemicals are naturally found in strawberries, and they’re the reason it smells that way to us.
Just because something is called “methyl butyrate,” it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it, or that the strawberry didn’t make it itself!
