Chemical Information
FooDB NameUndecanal
DescriptionUndecanal, also known as undecyl aldehyde or aldehyde C-11, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as medium-chain aldehydes. These are an aldehyde with a chain length containing between 6 and 12 carbon atoms. Thus, undecanal is considered to be a fatty aldehyde lipid molecule. Undecanal is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. Undecanal is a sweet, aldehydic, and citrus tasting compound. Undecanal is found, on average, in the highest concentration in corianders. Undecanal has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as corns, mandarin orange (clementine, tangerine), wild celeries, sweet oranges, and lemons. This could make undecanal a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
