The essential oil from peppermint, Mentha x piperita L., is one of the most widely used oils by the flavor industry for mint flavoring. However, abundant literature and experts’ observations report the varying composition and organoleptic profiles of peppermint oils according to the region of production, climatic variation and harvest date.1-3

The flavor and fragrance industry uses many classes of chemicals, including a number that otherwise are encountered only rarely outside of organic chemistry textbooks. A good example is Schiff bases, named for their discoverer, German chemist Hugo Schiff (1834-1915). A Schiff base, along with by-product water, is formed by reaction of an aldehyde with a primary amine.

Citrus peel oils are of great importance for the flavor and fragrance industry because they are widely used in perfumes, beverages, food and cosmetic products. Many publications cover the analysis of the volatile substances of peel oils. Nevertheless, the non-volatile ingredients seem to play an important role in citrus oils, too.

Understanding how aroma compounds interact with and are released from simple and complex foods. Flavors and fragrances usually are complex mixtures of molecules with different physical properties, including volatility, fat solubility and sensorial characteristics, covering a wide spectrum of threshold values. They are usually present in natural extracts or final products at levels in the order of ppb to ppm.
