Click below to get all relevant product details about Citronellal, our fruity and green citrus aroma ingredient, including regulatory and quality-related topics as well as insights into sustainability - compiled for you on our Virtual Aroma Assistants:


Fragrance: It shows an intensive citrus-like odor but turns out to be less sweet and fruity than Citral. The quality of this Aroma Chemical is very good and comparable to Citronella oil.

Flavor: Due to the rather unstable character of this aldehyde and its intensity it is generally only used in traces for citrus flavors.
