Anethole Production Cost Analysis 2020
Anethole or anise camphor is an organic compound that is commonly used as a flavouring substance. It is a derivative of phenylpropene, which is a type of aromatic compound that occurs abundantly in nature, in essential oils. It contributes significantly to the odour and flavour of anise as well as fennel. While most anethole is received from turpentine-like extracts from trees, it can also be isolated from essential oils.
Anethole is slightly soluble in water, but on the other hand, it exhibits high solubility in ethanol. As, like related compounds, anethole is poorly soluble in water, this property is used to detect adulteration in samples.
Anethole is quite sweet, measuring 13 times sweeter than sugar. It is used in alcoholic drinks raki, anisette, ouzo, and absinthe, among others. Moreover, it is also used in seasonings and confectionery applications, oral hygiene products, and in small quantities in natural berry flavours.
Anethole has several antimicrobial properties, against bacteria, yeasts, and fungi. It also acts as a promising insecticide. Several essential oils consisting mostly of anethole have insecticidal action against larvae of the mosquito Ochlerotatus caspius and Aedes aegypti.
