Description and usage notes:

As with all pyrazines this is used in traces – Methyl Pyrazine at 0.1% in Ethanol has a nutty-chocolate odour (reminiscent of hazelnut chocolate spread) but also has a distinctive green-vegetable aspect.  Very useful as part of an authentic chocolate or coffee accord, and can also contribute a nutty note to any gourmand fragrance or form part of a natural-smelling green complex.

Occurs in various nuts, vegetables etc as well as chocolate and coffee. Even at 0.1% this is a very powerful material that can easily dominate your blend, so use with caution.

Please note that although pyrazines are commonly used in flavouring this product is not suitable for human or animal consumption.
