Researchers are aiming to recreate the unique aroma of salmon using plants to support the development of alternative seafood products.
The work is being led by Dr Sirli Rosenvald from Estonia’s Centre of Food and Fermentation Technologies (TFTAK), whose team will take samples of salmon and unpick the fish’s complex scent “molecule by molecule”.
They will then identify which chemicals are associated with the distinctive aroma, before creating a series of scent profiles and working with a panel of sensory experts who will decide which most closely resembles the mouth-watering smell of salmon hitting the pan.
