Ethyl Maltol is a white crystalline powder with an intensely sweet caramel odor. It is used as a flavoring agent in various products to enhance aroma and taste. Ethyl Maltol has the chemical formula C7H8O3 and is slightly soluble in water and glycerin but readily soluble in propylene glycol, ethanol and essential oils.
Ethyl Maltol is commonly used as a flavor enhancer in foods, beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. It helps provide the characteristic caramel flavor to products without the dark color from caramel colorings. Ethyl Maltol works synergistically with maltol to produce a wide range of caramel-like flavors and is more potent than maltol. The combined use of ethyl maltol and maltol creates flavors reminiscent of butterscotch, dulce de leche and cocoa.
Ethyl Maltol is produced by chemically synthesizing maltol. It has a mild characteristic odor and is stable under normal storage conditions away from excess moisture and direct light exposure. Proper handling and storage helps maximize shelf life and effectiveness as a flavoring agent. Ethyl Maltol is approved as a flavor additive in many countries with the E number E637 and has CAS number 4940-11-8.
