Sweet and savoury aroma chemicals

Sweet & Savoury

Aroma Chemicals For Savory Flavors


These are two articles from the late 1990's covering some important top note chemicals for contrasting sweet and savoury applications.

The savoury article also has definitions of savoury as used by "the general public": Fried, fatty and roasted notes, Meaty aromas, "Allium" odours (onion and garlic) and spicy / smoky / cheesy notes.

Aroma Chemicals For The Sweet Field

The second article covers the "sweet field" - flavours used in soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, chocolate, flour and sugar confectionery, ice cream, and chewing gum.
