Although there is limited knowledge about the stability of the desirable components of flavor, a loss of flavor quality during storage may well be the result of the deterioration of desirable flavor as opposed to the formation of off flavors. There has been more research into off flavor formation, but this chapter reviews work done on the stability of desirable flavor components in model and real food systems.
