Chemical Information
FooDB Nametrans-p-Coumaric acid
DescriptionWidespread in plants, e.g. peel of black cherry (Prunus serotina), lentil seeds and from red clover (Trifolium pratense). Found by Bate-Smith in 48% of investigated dicotyledonous and 55% of monocotyledonous subspecies Coumaric acid is a hydroxycinnamic acid, an organic compound that is a hydroxy derivative of cinnamic acid. There are three isomers, o-coumaric acid, m-coumaric acid, and p-coumaric acid, that differ by the position of the hydroxy substitution of the phenyl group. p-Coumaric acid is the most abundant isomer of the three in nature. trans-p-Coumaric acid is found in many foods, some of which are common buckwheat, radish, sweet orange, and avocado.
