The distinction between Flavor and essential oil

2019-03-18 11:42:02

Flavor is a fragrance of natural foods, which is carefully blended with natural and natural equivalent flavors and synthetic flavors to produce a variety of flavors with natural flavors.
Essential oils are aromatic factors extracted from the flowers, diameters, leaves, roots and fruits of plants. The essential oils are highly volatile and will evaporate quickly upon contact with air.
Fragrance is a synthetically concentrated scent that mimics the scent of fruit and natural flavors. It is an artificial spice that is not volatile and has a pungent taste.

Differentiating method:

1. Pour 2 cups of boiling water, add 2-3 drops of essential oil and essence respectively, and then smell the smell of water vapor. The smell is fragrant and pleasant, very soft. This is the essential oil; on the contrary, the taste is more pungent and has a strange smell. It is the essence.
2, is to take 2 paper towels, drop 2 - 3 drops of essential oils and flavors, put the paper towel folded in the sun, observe for 2 - 4 hours. The essential oil has a high volatility, and there is no trace on the paper towel. There is almost no taste or a slight taste left on the paper towel (depending on the experiment with which essential oil is used). The essence will leave a grease mark (oily spots) on the paper towel, and a very pungent smell.
3, this is the need to rely on years of understanding of essential oils, directly with the nose to smell, to distinguish between essential oils and flavors.
