                         This is a decision on appeal from the final rejection of claims 7-12.                             
                  We have jurisdiction under 35 U.S.C.  6(b).  We affirm.

                                A problem with developing flavoring agents for fruity                                      
                         and herbaceous materials, such as mango flavor, is that natural                                   
                         plant materials do not contain a single flavoring agent, but                                      
                         rather contain a complex mixture of volatile components                                           
                         making identification of characteristic flavors very difficult.
