ALDEHYDE C9; THE PERFUMER’S FRIEND WITH FLAVOURING FLAIR
Aldehyde C9, also known as Nonanal or Nonyl aldehyde, is a powerful oil used in the flavour and fragrances industry. This occurs naturally but can be produced by hydroformylation of 1-octene. It is a colourless to pale yellow liquid, with a waxy-floral fragrance. Aldehyde C9 offers a fresh, sweet, citrus scent and is imbued with hints of cucumber and rose.
Its citrus flavour – featuring nuances of raw potato, oily nuts, and coconut – makes it a common additive to citrus, dairy, fruit, nut, tea, and meat flavours. Aldehyde C9 is an approved food additive, and can be incorporated directly into foodstuffs, confirming its safety for human consumption.
