This report describes the consumption of aroma chemicals. Aroma chemicals are individual molecules that are the building blocks of perfume. Each individual molecule has an aroma profile and characteristics of its own. These molecules can be blended with other aroma chemicals as well as essential oils and/or fragrance oils to create a perfume.
Sometimes called aroma ingredients or aroma molecules, aroma chemicals are materials that are used in flavours and fragrance compositions. In scientific terms, aroma chemicals are single, chemically defined substances which act on the senses of smell and taste; these are compounded together to produce flavour and fragrance formulations.
Aroma chemicals consist of natural, natureidentical, and artificial molecules. Natural products are obtained directly from plant or animal sources by physical procedures. Natureidentical compounds are produced synthetically, but are chemically identical to their natural counterparts. Artificial flavour substances are compounds that have not yet been identified in plant or animal products for human consumption. There are about 3,000 different molecules that find use in the production of flavour and fragrance compositions.
The main groups of aroma chemicals are:
- Musk Chemicals
- Other (Ketones, Esters, Aldehydes, etc.)
