SAFC's Benzyl Isothiocyanate, FEMA# 4428, CAS# 622-78-6, is a nature identical ingredient. It occurs naturally in watercress, nasturtium, papaya and endive. Its odor at 1.0% is characterized by vegetative cabbage and radishlike notes, as well as green with a musty sulfurous earthiness reminiscent of mustard greens. Its taste at 0.5 ppm exhibits green vegetative cabbage, kimchi, radish and wasabilike flavor with green leafy nuances and imparting a strong trigeminal tongue numbing and raspy sensation. Possible applications include mustard, horseradish, vegetative nuances for cabbage, radish and watercress, tropical papaya mouthfeel effects.
