Chemical Information
FooDB NameEthanamine
DescriptionEthylamine, also known as 1-aminoethane or ethanamine, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as monoalkylamines. These are organic compounds containing an primary aliphatic amine group. Ethylamine is a very strong basic compound (based on its pKa). Ethylamine exists in all living organisms, ranging from bacteria to humans. Ethylamine is an ammonia and fishy tasting compound. Ethylamine is found, on average, in the highest concentration within a few different foods, such as barley, apples, and corns and in a lower concentration in wild carrots, cabbages, and white cabbages. Ethylamine has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as black elderberries, common grapes, french plantains, soy beans, and spinachs. This could make ethylamine a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Ethylamine is a potentially toxic compound.
