    Does Levulinic Acid have a noticeable aroma?

    What has been your experience using Levulinic Acid as part of a preservation system in O/W emulsion products?

    Any comments or discussion about Levulinic Acid’s aroma or lack thereof as well as its bacteriocidal efficacy as part of an O/W emulsion’s preservation system would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

    It does have a unique but faint smell. On the flip, the levulinic acid smell dies down when convert it to salts such as ammonium, sodium, magnesium, potassium, and calcium levulinates.
