Chemical Information
FooDB NameHyperin
DescriptionQuercetin 3-galactoside, also known as hyperin or hyperoside, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as flavonoid-3-o-glycosides. These are phenolic compounds containing a flavonoid moiety which is O-glycosidically linked to carbohydrate moiety at the C3-position. Quercetin 3-galactoside is found, on average, in the highest concentration within a few different foods, such as common walnuts (Juglans regia), black chokeberries (Photinia melanocarpa), and sorrels (Rumex acetosa) and in a lower concentration in red raspberries (Rubus idaeus), summer grapes (Vitis aestivalis), and almonds (Prunus dulcis). Quercetin 3-galactoside has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as pepper (spice), red tea, loquats (Eriobotrya japonica), common buckwheats (Fagopyrum esculentum), and herbs and spices. This could make quercetin 3-galactoside a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Quercetin 3-galactoside.
