Chemical Information
FooDB NameEpisesaminol
DescriptionEpisesaminol is a member of the class of compounds known as furanoid lignans. Furanoid lignans are lignans with a structure that contains either a tetrahydrofuran ring, a furan ring, or a furofuan ring system, that arises from the joining of the two phenylpropanoid units. Episesaminol is practically insoluble (in water) and a very weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). Episesaminol can be found in sesame, which makes episesaminol a potential biomarker for the consumption of this food product.
