massoia harvestMassoia lactone is an alkyl lactone derived from the bark of the Massoia tree (Cryptocaria massoia) which is found in Papua, Indonesia though the compound can also be found as a component of cane sugar molasses, cured tobacco and the essential oil of Sweet Osmanthus (Osmanthus fragrans).

Massoia lactone has an odour that is described as sweet, coconut meat, lactonic, creamy, milky and waxy and, at a dilution of 20 ppm, a taste described as creamy, coconut, green and slightly fruity.


We harvest massoia barks from our own regrown massoia tree that planted on remotely higher ground of papua, with help from local farmer and harvester, and without endangering the area from deforestation by keeping it regrowth.
