Chemical Information
FooDB NameLauric aldehyde
DescriptionLauric aldehyde, also known as dodecyl aldehyde or N-dodecanal, 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, lauric aldehyde is considered to be a fatty aldehyde lipid molecule. Lauric aldehyde is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral. Lauric aldehyde is an aldehydic, citrus, and fat tasting compound. Lauric aldehyde is found, on average, in the highest concentration in a few different foods, such as corianders, sweet oranges, and lemons and in a lower concentration in mandarin orange (clementine, tangerine) and limes. Lauric aldehyde has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as citrus, herbs and spices, wild celeries, mollusks, and fruits. This could make lauric aldehyde a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Lauric aldehyde has been linked to the inborn metabolic disorders including celiac disease.
