Kalama® Cinnamic Aldehyde is an aromatic aldehyde, widely used in flavoring where a cinnamon character is desired. Although it is found in nature as the main constituent of cassia and cinnamon bark oils, the majority of Kalama® Cinnamic Aldehyde is produced synthetically. Kalama® Cinnamic Aldehyde adds spicy oriental notes to soap, perfumes, and household items. It is also used in flavoring compounds at concentrations ranging from 0.01 to 0.8 %. In Europe and the United States, Kalama® Cinnamic Aldehyde is especially popular in bakery goods, toothpaste, chewing gum, candy, and mouthwash. Kalama®Cinnamic Aldehyde was given GRAS status by FEMA in 1965. In the United States, it is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) as a synthetic flavoring substance (21 CFR § 182.60). Kalama® Cinnamic aldehyde is an unsaturated aldehyde, so it can easily react to create many different compounds that are used in a wide range of fragrance compositions. It is also a building block for miticides or for derivatives such as cinnamic alcohol, 3-phenyl propanol, and cinnamonitrile.
