Kalama® C-8 Aldehyde FCC

Citrus notes

Kalama® C-8 Aldehyde FCC is an important flavor and fragrance agent for a variety of applications, such as soaps, detergents, creams, light fragrances, and eau de parfums. As a fragrance compound, it brings a citrus character in personal care, household care, artificial citrus oils, and perfumery. Its pungent odor becomes citrus-like on dilution.

Kalama® C-8 Aldehyde FCC is used as a flavoring agent in foods, such as baked goods, candy, ice cream, and gelatins. At 25 ppm, it provides a green flavor with an orange-peel citrus note. Kalama® C-8 Aldehyde is also known as octanal, octyl aldehyde, and caprylic aldehyde and is an  FDA GRAS ingredient (21 CFR §172.515).
