It is a colorless liquid with a pleasant odor of butter and cream. At 100 ppm it has a taste of fresh butter and cream, with a slightly acidic note. Moreover, it gives some mouthfeel and roundness to a product.
Acetoin is intended for flavorists to use in flavors such as butter, cream, cheese, meat, fruit and alcohol. It can therefore be used in many food products such as dairy, bakery, chocolate and savory products.
