Chemical Information
FooDB NameBenzyl salicylate
DescriptionBenzyl salicylate, also known as fema 2151, 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. Benzyl salicylate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Benzyl salicylate is a sweet, balsam, and clean tasting compound. Benzyl salicylate has been detected, but not quantified in, cloves and herbs and spices. This could make benzyl salicylate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
