Massoiarinden CO2 extract is used to flavour food and beverages. Its sweet scent is reminiscent of coconut. It is used for flavouring e.g. butter, milk and dairy products, bakery and confectionery products, sweets, ice cream, popcorn, muesli. Massoia lactone has a pleasant, coconut-like fragrance that can be described as sweet, creamy and milky. Already a concentration of 20-50 ppm gives products a creamy, coconut-like note with greenish and slightly fruity nuances.*

IFRA (International Fragrance Association) bans the use of massoia oil and massoia lactone because the toxicological evaluation of the ingredients has not been completed [2].*
