The volatile flavor compounds in glassine packages were characterized using headspace concentration technique and GC/MS. The major compounds identified were 2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediol, 3,3-di-methyl-4-hydroxybutanal, and 2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediol diacetate. Compounds representing hydrocarbons, alcohols, and phthalates were also identified. The majority of these compounds could be attributed to residues from the lacquer applied to the glassine paper as a curable coating.
