Offering a fruity, pineapple rich scent, Allyl Caproate is an aromatic chemical used the world over in both Flavours and Fragrances. With its unique rum-like nuances, this highly stable Allyl Hexanoate Ester occurs naturally in pineapples, baked potato, and mushrooms and is described as being fatty-fruity, floral, and mossy.
Allyl Caproate is clear to yellowish in colour and is frequently used for a fruity topnote to deliver citrus complexes (particularly orange) in flavours.
Diverse Uses of Allyl Caproate Across Flavours and Fragrances
Thanks to its scent and taste – and the fact that it is permitted for direct addition to food for human consumption, and use as a synthetic flavouring substance and adjuvant, by the FDA – Allyl Caproate is widely used in flavours and fragrances.
Flavour Applications of Allyl Caproate
In flavour applications, Allyl Caproate is widely used to replicate pineapple flavours. It also offers synthesised spice and tobacco flavours, while delivering notes of apple, mango, apricot, strawberry, and peach depending on how it is distilled and with what.
The fruity Allyl Caproate flavours can often be found in applications such as rums, chewing gum, and candy.
