Ethyl vanillin is a broad-spectrum flavor, one of the most important synthetic flavors in the world today, and an indispensable and important raw material in the food additive industry. Its aroma is 3-4 times that of vanillin, with a strong vanilla bean aroma and a long-lasting fragrance.

In addition, ethyl vanillin can also be used as a feed additive, a brightener in the electroplating industry, and an intermediate in the pharmaceutical industry.
1. Dissolve catechol ether and sodium hydroxide in water, gradually add chloroform, boil to remove excess chloroform, the solution is acidified to precipitate a resinous substance, filter and extract the filter residue with ether, then purify by bisulfite method, and use Derived from high-pressure steam removal of impurities.
2. Dissolve protocatechualdehyde in absolute ethanol, add potassium hydroxide ethanol solution and sodium ethyl sulfate, and heat to 130°C in a pressure kettle. After removing alcohol, it was extracted with ether, and then treated with sodium hydroxide solution to remove impurities.
3. It is formed by condensation of o-ethoxyphenol, p-nitrosodimethylaniline hydrochloride and hexamethylenetetramine.
Do not use it with strong acid in a cool, dark, dry and ventilated warehouse.

Why is Ethyl vanillin added to infant formula?
For more than 6 months, the baby's sense of taste will be constantly developing, and it is more sensitive to the stimulation from foreign condiments. Since the baby starts to eat complementary food, after comparing the taste of various foods, he will gradually develop some taste preferences. Therefore, adding ethyl vanillin to the milk powder within the limited range can improve the milky flavor of the milk powder, avoid the milk-loathing behavior that the baby may have at this stage, and thus ensure the baby's daily milk powder nutritional intake.
Is the formula with Ethyl vanillin safe? Are there any side effects?
The national standard GB2760-2011 "National Food Safety Standard Food Additives Use Regulations" stipulates: "Vanillin, ethyl vanillin and vanilla bean extract (extract) can be used in formula food for older infants and young children, and the maximum use The amount is 5mg/100ml, 5mg/100ml and used in moderation according to production needs, of which 100ml is calculated as ready-to-eat food, and the manufacturer should convert it into the amount used in formula food according to the reconstitution ratio; pandan can be used in infant cereal complementary food The maximum use amount is 7mg/100g, of which 100g is calculated as ready-to-eat food, and the manufacturer should convert it into the use amount in cereal food according to the reconstitution ratio; no food shall be added to the formula food for infants and young children in the range of 0 to 6 months. with spices."
It can be seen that, as long as the dosage of ethyl vanillin is reasonable in older infant milk powder or complementary food, it is still possible to add ethyl vanillin appropriately, and the country has strict control over infant milk powder, so you don't need to worry about it.
