Chemical Information
FooDB NameDimethyl trisulfide
DescriptionDimethyl trisulfide, also known as sulfa-hitech or DMTS, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as organic trisulfides. These are organosulfur compounds with the general formula RSSSR' (R,R'=alkyl, aryl). Dimethyl trisulfide is possibly neutral. Dimethyl trisulfide exists in all eukaryotes, ranging from yeast to humans. Dimethyl trisulfide is a cabbage, cooked, and fish tasting compound. Dimethyl trisulfide is found, on average, in the highest concentration within a few different foods, such as kohlrabis, soft-necked garlics, and milk (cow). Dimethyl trisulfide has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as broccoli, shiitakes, garden onions, mushrooms, and nuts. This could make dimethyl trisulfide a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Dimethyl trisulfide, with regard to humans, has been found to be associated with several diseases such as autism, pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified, ulcerative colitis, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease; dimethyl trisulfide has also been linked to the inborn metabolic disorder celiac disease.
