Nootkatone 98% 103

Posted: January 12, 2012

Allylix, Inc.’s nootkatone 98% 103 (FEMA#3166, CAS# 4674-50-4)—a fresh, citrus, woody note—is developed by the company in a fermentation process that biosynthetically produces commercial quantities of valencene in its natural state, which is then converted to nootkatone in large quantities. Nootkatone can be used as a flavor material in beverage, confectionary, frozen dairy and baked good applications, as well as a fragrance in perfumes, colognes, fabric and personal care products, where it provides a long-lasting, fresh aroma for fabric, hair and skin.
