Research sheds light on practical ways to prevent losses in vanillin during production. Vanillin (3-methoxy-4-hydroxybenzaldehyde), a major flavor constituent of vanilla flavor, accumulates as glucovanillin, a parent compound of vanillin, in the interior of the vanilla pod, where it is synthesized by specialized cells. Synthesis of glucovanillin ensues when the vanilla pod has reached its maximum size and continues at a rapid rate for three to four months, then tapers off gradually for an additional few months.
