Triethyl Citrate (TEC)

Triethyl Citrate (TEC) is a versatile solvent for oily products, crystals, powders and resins. It is almost odourless with slight hints of mild fruity wine and plum notes. A potential replacement for the highly toxic DEP (Phthalates) for difficult to dissolve ingredients, TEC is also approved for use in flavours.

Important Notes:

End application data applies to experiments carried out by the authors or extrapolated from those experiments using computer algorithms. As application product formulations vary widely this information is only a general guide.

Full testing by both perfumers- flavorists and end users is the only proven method to ensuring a perfume or flavours safety- strength- suitability- stability and success.
