Chemical Information
FooDB NameEthyl salicylate
DescriptionEthyl salicylate, also known as fema 2458 or mesotol, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as o-hydroxybenzoic acid esters. These are benzoic acid esters where the benzene ring is ortho-substituted with a hydroxy group. Ethyl salicylate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Ethyl salicylate is a sweet, balsam, and floral tasting compound. Ethyl salicylate has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as black elderberries, cherry tomato, alcoholic beverages, fruits, and garden tomato. This could make ethyl salicylate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
