So, what is acetaldehyde?

Acetaldehyde is a colorless liquid with a pungent odor and a distinct fruity or floral aroma. It is a simple organic compound with the chemical formula CH3CHO, and it is one of the most important aldehydes used in the production of various foods and beverages. Acetaldehyde is naturally present in some fruits and vegetables, including apples, tomatoes, and ripe bananas, and it is also formed during the fermentation process of beer and wine. This versatile ingredient is commonly used as a flavoring agent, preservative, and ripening agent in the food industry, imparting a unique and desirable taste to a wide range of products, including cheese, bread, and coffee.
