ethyl maltol is a food additive with a sweet odor that can be described as caramelized sugar or cooked fruit. It’s a cost-effective flavor enhancer because only a tiny usage, usually 0.01-0.1%, could significantly boost the original odor of food. Besides, it could also help to cover the unpleasant odor of some highly concentrated meat products or seasonings. Pengyuan provides two types of ethyl maltol. One has an original fruity odor and the other has a special burnt sugar odor. Both of them could perfectly match various foods so manufacturers could choose between according to expectation for final odor.
