Abstract

Volatile oil from Nigerian cardamom (Aframomum daniellii (Hook. f.) K. Schum.) was analysed by GC and GC MS and its physicochemical and sensory properties were compared to those of large cardamom (Amomum subulatum) from India. 41 constituents were identified in A. daniellii essential oil; 1,8-cineole was the predominant constituent (59.8%), followed by beta-pinene, alpha-terpineol, alpha-pinene and alpha-terpinyl acetate (13.2, 9.3, 4.3 and 3.2%, respectively). Oil composition was similar to that of large cardamom, particularly with respect to the presence of monoterpenes and their oxygenated derivatives. However, only Nigerian cardamom oil contained alpha-terpinyl acetate, which is believed to improve the flavour quality of cardamom oils.
