“Musty-TCA, like corked wine or a damp cellar”
Certified soft drinks flavour standard used to train professional soft drink tasters to recognize and scale the intensity of musty character.
Trichloroanisoles contaminate soft drinks through ingredients, water, air and packaging materials. The compounds arise from the action of moulds on common environmental contaminants. Chloroanisoles are extremely flavour-active. They impart unpleasant musty odours, reminiscent of damp cellars or corked wine.
