Chemical Information
FooDB Namep-Coumaroylquinic acid
Description3-p-coumaroylquinic acid belongs to quinic acids and derivatives class of compounds. Those are compounds containing a quinic acid moiety (or a derivative thereof), which is a cyclitol made up of a cyclohexane ring that bears four hydroxyl groups at positions 1,3.4, and 5, as well as a carboxylic acid at position 1. 3-p-coumaroylquinic acid is slightly soluble (in water) and a weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). 3-p-coumaroylquinic acid can be found in a number of food items such as redcurrant, highbush blueberry, sweet cherry, and blackcurrant, which makes 3-p-coumaroylquinic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products.
