Description of Orange Oil Bitter Brazil

Steam-distilled from the fragrant peels of the Seville orange fruits, Bitter Orange Oil is heavily utilized throughout the flavor and fragrance industry for its intense citrus aroma. Less sweet and much more tart than its more common alternative, this oil is commonly found within soft drinks, liqueurs, marinades, and sauces. The pithy, somewhat woody undertones also makes it popular among perfumes and fine fragrances, which can enhance other floral and citrus ingredients.
