FooDB NameOctanal
DescriptionIsolated from various plant oils especies Citrus subspeciesand is also present in kumquat peel oil, cardamom, coriander, caraway and other herbs. Flavouring agent, used in artificial citrus formulations Octanal is a substrate for Fatty aldehyde dehydrogenase and Alcohol dehydrogenase.; Octanal is an aldehyde with the chemical formula C8H16O. It occurs natuarally as a colorless or lightly yellow tinged liquid with a fruit-like odor. It is a fairly combustible liquid. It is used commercially as a component in perfumes and in flavor production for the food industry. Octanal is found in many foods, some of which are pili nut, common chokecherry, pepper (spice), and pasta.
