Mandarin petitgrain terpeneless - Citrus deliciosa Ten., methyl N-methylanthranilate, dimethyl anthranilate
The starting material, mandarin petitgrain oil, is steam distilled from the fresh leaves and twigs. Sometimes whole, small, raw fruit or peel of raw fruit is added. Petitgrain oils with markedly varying levels of methyl N-methylanthranilate have been reported in the literature. The petitgrain oil is fractionated under vacuum to min. 98% dimethyl anthranilate and is most commonly used in natural grape flavours. Unlike methyl anthranilate, it will not form Schiff bases with aldehydes and is less likely to discolour.
