Flavour chemical first for Treatt

Added: (Fri Jul 06 2001)

Pressbox (Press Release) - Treatt, a leading chemical distributor in the flavour and fragrance market, has established the first commercially available source of 3-Methyl-2,4-nonanedione. A high impact, specialty aromatic chemical, 3-Methyl-2,4-nonanedione can be used in tea, honey and parsley formulations – all key flavour types in the food sector. Its launch marks an important step for flavourists in their quest to improve formulations and mouthfeel to develop truly distinctive products.

Imparting hay-like green notes, 3-Methyl-2,4-nonanedione is found naturally occurring in dry green and black tea as well as dry parsley. Flavourists will find many uses for
3-Methyl-2,4-nonanedione – these include its use in savoury applications which require the taste of parsley, or in beverage applications in a brewed tea base, where concentrations of just 0.1 – 0.2 ppm add a tea-like aftertaste.

3-Methyl-2,4-nonanedione has also been found to impart pleasant and warm hay-cereal-flour-like buttery, green woody-type notes.

3-Methyl-2,4-nonanedione can be used in conjunction with natural menthatriene; both are important character compounds, naturally occurring, in parsley for example.

Treatt offers over 300 small-scale specialty chemical top notes, including pyrazines, thiazoles and other sulphur, nitrogen and oxygen heterocyclic chemicals. As leaders in the development of innovative flavour and fragrance ingredients, also including essential oils and natural fractions, Treatt is the first port-of-call for flavour manufacturers who want to formulate exciting new products. Treatt’s extensive stockholding of ingredients enables its customers to buy large and small quantities at short notice.
