Off-flavors frequently appear during the storage of potato flakes. Volatile profile analysis performed by solid-phase microextraction-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry revealed that hexanal is the main compound that appears during the storage period. Hexanal may be a degradation product of linoleic acid formed through linoleic acid hydroperoxide cleavage. Profiles of hexanal precursors were determined from potato flakes at different storage time points. Linoleic acid-derived oxylipins are predominant in potato flakes. The free oxylipins identified, in descending order, are as follows: hexanal, hydroxy polyunsaturated fatty (PUFAs), oxo PUFAs, divinyl ether PUFAs, and hydroperoxy PUFAs. However, the main oxylipins detected were esterified: esterified hydroxy, hydroperoxy, and oxo PUFAs. Oxylipins reveal different evolutions during the storage period. Chiral high-performance liquid chromatography analysis of the precursors of hexanal and other oxylipins revealed a racemic composition that supports the nonenzymatic formation of hexanal and most of the other oxylipins identified.
