Strawberries are highly nutritious fruits, often regarded as the “queen of fruits,” containing numerous beneficial nutrients for humans. Nowadays, strawberries have been researched and processed into fragrance forms, widely applied in the food and beverage processing industry. Let’s explore strawberries and strawberry flavor with PEROMA through the following article.


Strawberries, also known as ground berries, are a genus of flowering plants in the rose family, producing fruit favored by many. Originating from the Americas, strawberries were introduced by European gardeners in the 18th century, leading to the widespread cultivation of the strawberry varieties we know today.

When it comes to juicy fruits, strawberries consistently rank as one of the most beloved choices. With their heart-shaped appearance and vibrant color, strawberries convey messages of love and health. Strawberries are known to increase HDL (good) cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and provide protection against cancer.



Imagine the vibrant, deep red color of a perfectly ripe strawberry, coupled with its soft texture carrying the refreshing taste as you pop one into your mouth. At the juncture of your jaw, your nose will catch the unique aroma of fruit blossoms punctuated with a hint of sweet caramel.

The fragrance of strawberries can be likened to biting into a juicy, ripe fruit—enticing yet elusive due to its complexity. Comprising over 350 volatile compounds, it contributes to the sweet flavor profile of this juicy fruit. Unlike cherries, largely characterized by a single compound (benzaldehyde), strawberries are a composite of various esters, acids, aldehydes, lactones, and other compounds. The scent of strawberries is a combination of fruity, caramel, and woody aromas, with hints of smoke and even a touch of cotton candy.

Ethyl Butyrate, one of the most important strawberry esters, contributes to the ripe fruit flavor that we recognize in freshly picked berries.

Furanones carry a caramel scent, hexenals exude grassy notes, while acetic acid, the main component of vinegar, contributes to the tartness of strawberries and enhances other flavors. The strawberry flavor would not be complete without butyric acid, which plays a role in enhancing the fruity tartness of the berry.

It is very difficult to replicate the natural scent of strawberries that closely resembles the real aroma of the fruit. Therefore, natural strawberry flavor is preferred over synthetic strawberry fragrance. The complexity in the aroma structure of strawberries requires the skills of a trained and experienced perfumer, who understands and manipulates the strawberry flavor by balancing the ratio of acids and sugars according to the preferences of the customers.
