The key odorants of Tahitian vanilla beans (Vanilla tahitensis) were characterized by a sensory evaluation, aroma extract dilution analysis (AEDA), quantification, and aroma reconstitution. Vanillin and anisaldehyde were identified in the same highest flavor dilution (FD) factor as the most characteristic odor-active compounds in Tahitian vanilla beans, followed by anisyl alcohol and anisyl acetate. Vanillin and anisyl alcohol were by far the most abundant odorants present with the highest… Expand
Key Odorants in Cured Madagascar Vanilla Beans (Vanilla planiforia) of Differing Bean Quality
It is suggested from these results that the concentration ratio of vanillin and guaiacol could be used as an index for the quality of Madagascar vanilla beans. Expand
Impact of vanilla origins on sensory characteristics of chocolate.
Sensory profiles of vanillas from various origins were more visible and pronounced in white chocolate compared to milk chocolate, indicating possibilities of vanilla replacement and consumer preferences across Europe and Canada. Expand
Identification of volatile compounds in cured Mexican vanilla (Vanilla planifolia G. Jackson) beans using headspace solid-phase microextraction with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry
