Two glycoconjugates of glutamic acid, namely, the N-glycoside dipotassium N-(d-glucos-1-yl)-l-glutamate (1) and the corresponding Amadori compound N-(1-deoxy-d-fructos-1-yl)-l-glutamic acid (2), have been synthesized in yields of 35 and 52%, respectively, using new Maillard-mimetic approaches, and their chemical structures have unequivocally been elucidated(More)
2-Substituted-5-methyl-3-oxazolines, a novel class of aroma precursors that are able to release the respective Strecker aldehydes by hydrolysis, were identified. Hydrolysis can take place after the addition of water or with human saliva during mastication, respectively. 2-Isobutyl-, 2-sec-isobutyl-, 2-isopropyl, and 2-benzyl-5-methyl-3-oxazolines were(More)
