Chemical Information
FooDB NameSecoisolariciresinol-sesquilignan
DescriptionSecoisolariciresinol-sesquilignan is a member of the class of compounds known as dibenzylbutanediol lignans. Dibenzylbutanediol lignans are lignan compounds containing a 2,3-dibenzylbutane-1,4-diol moiety. Secoisolariciresinol-sesquilignan is practically insoluble (in water) and a very weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). Secoisolariciresinol-sesquilignan can be found in sesame, which makes secoisolariciresinol-sesquilignan a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product.
