Natural Advantage, LLC's 6-Methyl-5-hepten-2-ol

Natural Advantage


Natural Advantage introduces brand new GRAS material, natural 6-methyl-5-hepten-2-ol (FEMA# 4884, CAS# 1569-60-4). This material occurs naturally in tomato, strawberry and raspberry. Natural 6-methyl-5-hepten-2-ol is typically known for its importance in tropical and citrus flavors; however, it also performs exceptionally well in dairy products. This product can be used for butter, cheese, milk and cream; while softening the effects of harsh saturated ketones, 6-methyl-5-hepten-2-ol also adds creaminess and can enhance cheese flavors, particularly cheddar and blue cheese. Recommended use levels are 5 ppm-200 ppm.
