Chemical Information
FooDB NameVitexin
DescriptionVitexin is a member of the class of compounds known as flavonoid 8-c-glycosides. Flavonoid 8-c-glycosides are compounds containing a carbohydrate moiety which is C-glycosidically linked to 8-position of a 2-phenylchromen-4-one flavonoid backbone. Vitexin is slightly soluble (in water) and a very weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). Vitexin can be found in a number of food items such as flaxseed, prairie turnip, mung bean, and tree fern, which makes vitexin a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. Vitexin is an apigenin flavone glucoside, a chemical compound found in the passion flower, Vitex agnus-castus (chaste tree or chasteberry), in the Phyllostachys nigra bamboo leaves, in the pearl millet (Pennisetum millet), and in Hawthorn .
