Influences of the thermal treatment on the odors of apple juice were investigated by sensory methodology. Reconstituted juice was treated at 80, 90, 100, 110 and 120 °C for 2.0∼320 s by a continuous-flow thermal treatment. Treated juices were subjected to a series of sensory evaluations. The odors of apple juice changed markedly with the treatment temperature and residence time. The quality optimum points were observed around 65 s for 80 °C, 25 s for 90 °C and 15 s for 100 °C. Points of subjective equality on the thermal degradation of apple juice odor were also estimated. Present data enabled the thermal treatment of reconstituted apple juice to be optimized.
