Volatile components in green wheat under different treatments including raw, washing, blanching, precooling, freezing, steaming, boiling, frying, and freeze-drying were evaluated by gas chromatography-ion mobility spectroscopy (GC-IMS) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Five key aroma substances including n-hexanal, benzaldehyde, nonanal, 2-pentylfuran, and (E)-oct-2-enal were found by Venn diagram and odor activity values (OAV). Furthermore, according to volatile fingerprints characteristics and the aroma profile of sensory evaluation, it was found that green wheat under different treatments mainly presented seven characteristic flavor notes including sweet flowers, fat fragrance, mushroom hay, waxy aldehyde, citrus fruity, vegetable-like bean, and bitter almond from the sensory evaluation, and they could be divided into four categories, which was consistent with the results of PCA and GC-IMS.
