CAS 118-71-8 3 hydroxy 2 methyl 4 pyrone Used in Flavor Enhancers
What is the 3-Hydroxy-2-methyl-4-pyrone?
Maltol is a naturally occurring organic compound that is used
primarily as a flavor enhancer. It is found in the bark of larch
tree, in pine needles, and in roasted malt (from which it gets its
name). It is a white crystalline powder that is soluble in hot
water, chloroform, and other polar solvents. Because it has the
odor of cotton candy and caramel, maltol is used to impart a sweet
aroma to fragrances. Maltol's sweetness adds to the odor of freshly
baked bread, and is used as a flavor enhancer (INS Number 636) in
breads and cakes. It is not registered as a food additive in the EU
and thus has no E-number. Instead, maltol is registered as a flavor
component in the EU.
Maltol, like related 3-hydroxy-4-pyrones such as kojic acid, binds
to hard metal centers such as Fe3+, Ga3+, Al3+, and VO2+. Related
to this property, maltol has been reported to greatly increase
aluminum uptake in the body and to increase the oral
bioavailability of gallium and iron.
