Chemical Information
FooDB NameFerulic acid 4-glucoside
DescriptionFerulic acid 4-glucoside is a member of the class of compounds known as phenolic glycosides. Phenolic glycosides are organic compounds containing a phenolic structure attached to a glycosyl moiety. Some examples of phenolic structures include lignans, and flavonoids. Among the sugar units found in natural glycosides are D-glucose, L-Fructose, and L rhamnose. Ferulic acid 4-glucoside is slightly soluble (in water) and a weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). Ferulic acid 4-glucoside can be found in a number of food items such as redcurrant, gooseberry, highbush blueberry, and blackcurrant, which makes ferulic acid 4-glucoside a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products.
