Organoleptic Characteristics of Flavor Materials

By: Judith Michalski
Posted: December 26, 2013, from the January 2014 issue of P&F magazine.

In this monthly column, senior flavorist Judith Michalski describes the odor, taste and suggested applications for several materials.

For example, spearmint oleoresin, FEMA# 3031, CAS# 84696-51-5, natural (Mentha spicata L. (Lamiaceae)) from Lionel Hitchen exhibits a fresh, minty, green, cooling, herbal and leafy.  At low levels, its fresh, leafy profile with a delayed cooling nuance will add naturalness to vegetable flavors like lettuce and watercress, as well as herbal and tea flavors. At higher levels, it will add general, minty notes to compositions without screaming “spearmint.”

This edition also features discussions of 1-Tetradecanal (synonym: myristaldehyde; aldehyde C-14, myristic), spearmint oleoresin, 2-Ethyl-2-hexenal and more.
