Ethylmaltol

Ethylmaltol is a flavor enhancer that smells and tastes like caramel, but 4-6x more intense than maltol. It seems to have a positive impact on the mouthfeel of low-fat foods and the taste of spicy foodstuff. In natural food, Ethylmaltol has not yet been demonstrated.

Ethylmaltol enhances the sweetness of sweet foods and improves the flavor of fruits such as strawberries, pineapple, grapes and raspberries.

The acceptable daily intake (ADI) for Ethylmaltol is up to 2 mg / kg body weight.
