Yuzu is native to Japan and is one of the few citrus varieties that grows on a cold-hardy evergreen tree. Yuzu is steam distilled from the peels resulting in a unique and potently aromatic citrus essential oil. It takes 10lbs of peel to make each ounce of essential oil. Two constituents have recently been identified as key to this citrus peel’s unique odor profile that contribute significantly to its unique aromatic aspects1: (6Z, 8E)-6,8,10-undecatriene-3-one (yuzunone), also found in Galbanum, and (6Z, 8E)-6,8,10-undecatriene-4-ol (yuzuol). Yuzunone and yuzuol increase the balsamic, sweet, and floral characteristics that distinguish the Yuzu aroma from other citrus fruits.
