E637 — пищевая добавка, усилитель вкуса: этилмальтол, ethyl maltol (Е637)

Ethyl maltol is derived from maltol (E636) by replacing one metholy group with an ethyl group. Maltol is a naturally occurring organic compound that is found in the bark of larch trees, pine needles, and roasted malt. Commercially it is produced by the extraction of larch trees, or by the roasting of malt, or produced by heating lactose and maltose. It produces a white, crystalline powder that is very soluble, and has a distinct caramel/butterscotch smell.

Derived from maltol chemically. Needs more testing. Base for essences, synthetic artificial flavour and flavour enhancer. Sometimes lactose (from cow's milk) is used. It should thus be avoided by vegans. It does not contain lactose and can be used by lactose-intolerant people. Some countries ban it for babies and young children. Acceptable daily intake (ADI): Up to 2 mg/kg bodyweigh.
