Chemical Information
FooDB Name(Z)-Methyl isoeugenol
DescriptionMethyl isoeugenol belongs to the class of organic compounds known as dimethoxybenzenes. These are organic aromatic compounds containing a monocyclic benzene moiety carrying two methoxy groups. Methyl isoeugenol also belongs to the class of organic compounds known as phenyl propanoid. Methylisoeugenol is a mild, bitter, and clove tasting compound. It is the methyl ether derivative of isoeugenol, found in certain essential oils. Methyl Isoeugenol is naturally occurring and found in the essential oils of plants such as nutmegs, star anises, and gingers, ajowan caraway and allspice (PMID: 19259498). It can occur as both (E)- and (Z)-isomers. It has also been detected, but not quantified, in several different foods, such as sweet basils, carrots, ceylon cinnamons, wild carrots, and tarragons.
