Chemical Information
FooDB NameButyl propionate
DescriptionButyl propionate, also known as fema 2211, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as carboxylic acid esters. These are carboxylic acid derivatives in which the carbon atom from the carbonyl group is attached to an alkyl or an aryl moiety through an oxygen atom (forming an ester group). Butyl propionate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Butyl propionate is a sweet, banana, and earthy tasting compound. Butyl propionate has been detected, but not quantified in, apples and sweet cherries. This could make butyl propionate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Butyl propionate, with regard to humans, has been found to be associated with several diseases such as diarrhoea predominant irritable bowel syndrome, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and ulcerative colitis; butyl propionate has also been linked to the inborn metabolic disorder celiac disease.
