Characteristic odor components of Citrus sphaerocarpa Tanaka (Kabosu) cold-pressed peel oil.

The volatile components of Citrus sphaerocarpa Tanaka (Kabosu) cold-pressed peel oil were investigated by chemical and sensory analyses. Monoterpene hydrocarbons (more than 94.6%) were predominant in Kabosu peel oil, with limonene and myrcene accounting for the major proportions (70.5% and 20.2%, respectively). The Kabosu oxygenated fraction was characterized by quantitative abundance in aldehydes and a relatively wide variety of alcohols. The weight percentages of aldehydes, alcohols, and esters in Kabosu cold-pressed oil were 1.3%, 0.1%, and 0.1%, respectively. Aroma extract dilution analysis was employed for determination of the odors of Kabosu volatile components, flavor dilution factors, and relative flavor activities. Gas chromatography/olfactometry using Kabosu cold-pressed oil and its oxygenated fraction completed by a chiral analysis revealed that (R)-(+)-citronellal is a characteristic element of Kabosu peel oil odor. Careful sniff testing demonstrated that aqueous solutions of both 0.25% and 0.016% (R)-(+)-citronellal gave an odor similar to that of Kabosu.[1]
