Application

The rich, creamy, oily notes of this lactone will deliver depth and aftertaste to dairy flavors like milk, cream, butter and fresh cheeses. Those same qualities will enhance the fatty acids in nut flavors like pecan, macadamia, Brazil nut and coconut. Sweet brown flavors will also benefit, especially toffee, caramel, dulce de leche, custard, vanilla, butterscotch and chocolate. On the fruit side, it can be used to expand the lactonic profile of peach, apricot, strawberry and mango.
