Methyl jasmonate (FEMA# 3410) is high up on my list of favorite ingredients. The material is found in nature, most notably in lemon, mint and tea. It is also an important natural component of jasmine absolute and boronia absolute. Methyl jasmonate can be used for good effect in a wide variety of flavors. It is highly characteristic and versatile and, most importantly, very flexible with respect to its use level. It represents a very soft, true, jasmine character with few, if any, secondary notes.
