Callus cultures of naturally flavoured basmati rice (Oryza sativa var. 370) were obtained on Murashige and Skoog medium containing 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and kinetin. There was a perceptible basmati flavour in the fresh callus. Volatile flavour compounds from basmati rice and callus samples were obtained by steam distillation-solvent extraction, analysed by GC-MS, and compared. Results showed the presence of 29 major compounds in rice and 23 in callus; these included hydrocarbons, ketones, aldehydes, alcohols, and esters. [From En summ.]
