Chemical Information
FooDB Nametrans-2-Methoxycinnamaldehyde
DescriptionCassiastearoptene, also known as 2-methoxy cinnamaldehyde, is a member of the class of compounds known as cinnamaldehydes. Cinnamaldehydes are organic aromatic compounds containing a cinnamlaldehyde moiety, consisting of a benzene and an aldehyde group to form 3-phenylprop-2-enal. Cassiastearoptene is practically insoluble (in water) and an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Cassiastearoptene is a sweet, cassia, and cinnamon tasting compound found in ceylon cinnamon, chinese cinnamon, herbs and spices, and sweet basil, which makes cassiastearoptene a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products.
