Chemical Information
FooDB NamePhenylmethyl butanoate
DescriptionPhenylmethyl butanoate belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzyloxycarbonyls. These are organic compounds containing a carbonyl group substituted with a benzyloxyl group. Phenylmethyl butanoate is an apricot, berry, and butter tasting compound. Phenylmethyl butanoate has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as green tea, black tea, fruits, red tea, and teas (Camellia sinensis). This could make phenylmethyl butanoate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review very few articles have been published on Phenylmethyl butanoate.
