Maltol – Aroma with Caramel Flavor

Supplier of Maltol (E 636)

Maltol (E 636) is a food additive that is used as a flavor, flavor enhancer, and partial sugar substitute. Its distinctive characteristic is its velvety and caramel-like taste. As a flavor enhancer, it imparts the typical baking and roasting aromas, as found in bread baking or the roasting of coffee beans and cocoa.

Maltol (E 636) can be used in the processing industry for food and technical applications, such as:

  • Flavors (e.g., vanilla, caramel, fruits, nuts)
  • Beverages, fruit juices
  • Dairy products
  • Confectionary
  • Bakery
  • Flavor enhancers
  • Tobacco industry.

Maltol (E 636) is also used in various beverages, confectionary, desserts, and chocolate products. Here, it enhances the flavor and intensifies the sweetness, while also reducing the required addition of sugar by an average of five to fifteen percent. Additionally, Maltol (E 636) has preservative properties and does not need to be mentioned explicitly on the ingredient list; classification as a flavor is sufficient.

As an aroma and flavor enhancer, as well as a partial substitute for sugar, it is particularly suitable for further processing and the production of end products in the food industry, as well as for technical applications.
