Chemical Information
FooDB Name3,5-Di-O-caffeoylquinic acid
DescriptionDicaffeoylquinic acid, also known as 3,5-dicaffeoylquinate or 3,5-dcqa, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as quinic acids and derivatives. Quinic acids and derivatives are compounds containing a quinic acid moiety (or a derivative thereof), which is a cyclitol made up of a cyclohexane ring that bears four hydroxyl groups at positions 1,3.4, and 5, as well as a carboxylic acid at position 1. Dicaffeoylquinic acid is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Dicaffeoylquinic acid is found, on average, in the highest concentration within a few different foods, such as robusta coffee, coffee, and arabica coffee and in a lower concentration in carrots and quinces. Dicaffeoylquinic acid has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as green vegetables, lettuces, potato, fruits, and coffee and coffee products. This could make dicaffeoylquinic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
