Chemical Information
FooDB Name3-Phenyl-2-propenal
DescriptionCinnamaldehyde is the organic compound that gives cinnamon its flavor and odor. This pale yellow viscous liquid occurs naturally in the bark of cinnamon trees and other species of the genus Cinnamomum. The essential oil of cinnamon bark is about 90% cinnamaldehyde. 3-Phenyl-2-propenal is found in many foods, some of which are fig, cloves, anise, and wild celery.
