Sometimes a little goes a long way. One of the main ingredients in sweet snack foods is diacetyl. In very small doses, diacetyl gives food a smooth, buttery flavor. In large quantities, it smells something terrible. Companies that use diacetyl in their foods often store it in a different BUILDING because it stinks too much to work with.
