Fruit Flavour: The Double Benefit of Aroma Volatile Treatments

Student: Ellen Song

District/Region: Annapolis Valley Region

Event: 2012 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Grade 12 - Horton High School

The benefits of aroma precursor treatments were investigated in blueberries and apples. It was found that although the different fruit produce different aroma volatiles, the aroma is still greatly improved and enhanced. By inoculating apples with fungi and treating them, it was also discovered that precursors have an anti-microbial effect. This has great commercial application as fruit aroma is enhanced and decay is inhibited.
