Kalama® Benzaldehyde is a key aroma chemical, known for its unique, sweet character with notes of almond and cherry. Emerald offers several high purity grades, which are all nature identical to the benzaldehyde found in almonds, peaches, cherries, and apricots.
Kalama® Benzaldehyde is highly valued as a flavor and fragrance ingredient in applications such as simulated almond oil, food, beverage, personal care, cosmetics, fine fragrances / perfumery, home care, and animal feed. It is also used in the chemical synthesis of products such as pharmaceuticals and plastic additives, as well as in other agriculture and industrial applications.

Our leadership position and dual production locations (in the U.S. and Europe) allow us to set the standards for quality, reliability, and security of supply. Emerald’s high quality benzaldehyde is also used to synthesize many other Kalama Aroma Chemicals.
