Maltol:

Maltol is a naturally occurring organic compound that is used primarily as a flavor enhancer. It is found in the bark of larch tree, in pine needles, and in roasted malt (from which it gets its name). 

It is a white crystalline powder that is soluble in hot water, chloroform, and other polar solvents. Because it has the odor of cotton candy and caramel, maltol is used to impart a sweet aroma to fragrances. Maltol's sweetness adds to the odor of freshly baked bread, and is used as a flavor enhancer (INS Number 636) in breads and cakes. It is not registered as a food additive in the EU and thus has no E-number. Instead, maltol is registered as a flavor component in the EU.

Maltol, like related 3-hydroxy-4-pyrones such as kojic acid, binds to hard metal centers such as Fe3+, Ga3+, Al3+, and VO2+.[3] Related to this property, maltol has been reported to greatly increase aluminum uptake in the body and to increase the oral bioavailability of gallium and iron. 

This Maltol as a flavorings is a kind of broad-spectrum flavor-enhancing agent. It can be prepared into essence, essence for tobacco, cosmetics essence etc.. 

It is widely used in the industries including food, drink, tobacco,wine making, cosmetics and pharmacy etc.

Ethyl Maltol:

Ethyl maltol is an organic compound that is a common flavourant in some confectioneries. It is related to the more common flavorant maltol by replacement of the methyl group by an ethyl group. It is a white solid with a sweet smell that can be described as caramalized sugar and cooked fruit.

The conjugate base derived from ethylmaltol, again like maltol, has a high affinity for iron, forming a red coordination complex. In such compounds, the heterocycle is a bidentate ligand.

Ethyl Maltol can be used as flavours and has a fragrant odor. Ethyl Maltol as a Flavorings can still preserve its sweetness and aroma after it is dissolved in the water. And its solution is stable. 

As an ideal food additive, Ethyl Maltol features safety, innocuity, wide application, good effect and little dosage. It also can be used as good flavour agent in tobacco, food, beverage, essence, wine, daily-use cosmetics and so on. It can effectively improve and enhance the aroma of the food, enforce the sweetness for sweetmeat and prolong the shelf life of food. Since Ethyl Maltol is characterized with little dosage and good effect, its general added amount is about 0.1 to 0.5 .
