Cis-3 Hexenol is a fresh green aroma and flavour used in many applications in fruit flavours and fragrances.
It is produced synthetically in Japan and China and the natural version is a fraction of Mint disillations. It can also be produced from Tea and other leaves by macerating the leaves which releases the oils and natural enzymes to produce a number of aromas.
We offer all three types. In recent years the supply of synthetic has been a problem with only tow main producers and problems with production. This has seen the price accelarate from under $40 kg to over $200 kg .
