Also contains, I understand, flavouring (7)


I believe the answer is:


'flavouring' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'also contains i understand' is the wordplay.
'also' becomes 'and' (both can mean in addition).
'contains' is an insertion indicator.
'understand' becomes 'see' (synonyms).
'and' going around 'isee' is 'ANISEED'.

(Other definitions for aniseed that I've seen before include "Licorice-like flavour" , "Aromatic flavouring" , "Plant" , "Strong flavour" , "Licorice-flavoured sweets" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
