C-8 Aldehyde FCC

Kalama® C-8 Aldehyde is an important flavor and fragrance agent, also known as octanal, octyl aldehyde, and caprylic aldehyde. As a fragrance compound, it is used in soaps, detergents, artificial citrus oils, perfumery (in “light fragrances” and eau de parfums), and creams requiring a citrus character. Its pungent odor becomes citrus-like on dilution. It is also used in foods as a flavoring agent for baked goods, candy, ice cream, and gelatins. At 25 ppm, it provides a green flavor with an orange peel citrus note. C-8 Aldehyde is FDA GRAS under 21 CFR §172.515.
