    Propenyl Guaethol

    Aroma Aromatics & Flavours

    Blends of propenyl guaethol (FEMA# 2922, CAS# 94-86-0), vanillin and ethyl vanillin were compared with vanillin and ethyl vanillin alone as extenders for pure vanilla in frosting, hot chocolate, cake and as replacements for pure vanilla in puddings. The blend containing propenyl guaethol gave qualities nearer those of pure vanilla than any of the other synthetics alone or combined.
