Changes in the aroma of sake during aging were investigated by aroma extract dilution analysis (AEDA) and quantitative analysis using the stir bar sorptive extraction method. In AEDA, more odor zones were detected in aged sake than in fresh sake. The dilution factors of aldehydes, polysulfides, and some esters were greater in the aged sake, and their(More)
Dimethyl trisulfide (DMTS) is involved in the unpalatable aroma of stale Japanese sake, called "hineka". Recently, we isolated one of the precursor compounds of DMTS in sake and identified it as 1,2-dihydroxy-5-(methylsulfinyl)pentan-3-one (DMTS-P1), a previously unknown compound. In this work, the contribution of DMTS-P1 to the formation of DMTS was(More)
Dimethyl trisulfide (DMTS) is involved in the unpalatable aroma of stale sake, called "hineka"; however, the mechanism underlying the formation of DMTS during the storage of sake has not been elucidated. This paper investigates the precursors of DMTS in sake. An experiment using [methyl-d(3)]-methionine showed that Strecker degradation of methionine plays a(More)
