Know the chemical composition and aromas of cork

At the'infographic which we present below, which has been edited by the Catalan Institute of Cork Foundation, you will find information about the chemical composition and the aromas associated with cork.

As for the chemical composition, they include the suberina, the lignin, the polysaccharides, the extractives and the inorganic compounds to a small extent.

The aromas of cork, on the other hand, are vegetal and come from its growth in the Mediterranean forest. These fragrances help preserve the sensory attributes of the alcoholic beverages that cork bottles.
