How can a "mango" flavour not actually contain any mangoes?
Natural flavour components can sometimes be combined together to resemble other natural flavours. For example, components from apple and grape could be combined to get a flavour that tastes like strawberries, without using any actual strawberries. Natural flavours are sometimes made up of components from natural sources other than the named flavour because of availability, enhanced flavour profile, and better stability.
