Chemical Information
FooDB NameAsh
DescriptionAsh, also known as (ash)(2.), is a member of the class of compounds known as metalloid hydrides. Metalloid hydrides are inorganic hydride compounds in which the heaviest metal atom is a metalloid. Ash can be found in a number of food items such as safflower, jerusalem artichoke, pacific herring, and other vegetable product, which makes ash a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. Ashes as the end product of incomplete combustion will be mostly mineral, but usually still contain an amount of combustible organic or other oxidizable residues. The best-known type of ash is wood ash, as a product of wood combustion in campfires, fireplaces, etc. The darker the wood ashes, the higher the content of remaining charcoal will be due to incomplete combustion .
