Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Determination of the chemical nature and sensory profiles of nonfat dry milk (NDM) is necessary to improve processing methods and storage conditions to maintain product freshness. Aroma-active compounds of NDM were identified by gas chromatography/olfactometry (GCO) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Thermally induced volatiles Furaneol®, methional, sotolon, and maltol, free fatty acids, lactones as well as aldehydes and ketones were primary contributors to both desirable fresh and undesirable stale/stored aromas of NDM.
