Supercritical carbon dioxide extraction (12 MPa/50 degrees C) was used to isolate 3 aroma fractions with distinctly different compositions from the roots of A. archangelica var. archangelica plants growing in Finland. Sensory analysis of the fractions revealed a terpenic, fresh and pomerance-like character in the first fraction. The second fraction had the same features but they were less pronounced. The last fraction, collected after exhaustive extraction, was perceived as sweet and stale. Volatile compounds isolated from the roots were identified.
