PREPARATION OF DECADIENAL AND DECATRIENAL THROUGH BIOTRANSFORMATION
Published: 12 Sep 2020
Abstract: Many aroma active compounds can be produced by means of plant enzyme-catalysed reactions. The ability of the eggplant fruit enzymes to catalyse biotransformation of distilled sunflower and linseed oils to two important flavour compounds: (2E,4E)-decadienal, and (2E,4E,7Z)-decatrienal was investigated under various conditions. The results show that maximum yields were reached after 20 minutes of reaction for both compounds (2E,4E)-decadienal (1.24 g/kg of egg fruit) and (2E,4E,7Z)-decatrienal (1.4 g/kg of egg fruit), respectively. The extraction efficiency of ethyl acetate was higher compared to the use of isoamyl alcohol for both compounds.
