Chemical Information
FooDB NameMethyl linoleate
DescriptionMethyl linoleate belongs to the class of organic compounds known as linoleic acids which are derivatives of linoleic acid. Linoleic acid is a doubly unsaturated fatty acid, also known as an omega-6 fatty acid, occurring widely in plant glycosides. Methyl linoleate is an essentially neutral compound that is almost insoluble in water and soluble in alcohol. It has a low oily, fatty, woody odor ( Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid that humans do not synthesize and must obtain from diet. Methyl linoleate is found in clove bud and fruit, garlic bulb, jasmin, white mustard, parsley leaf oil and witch hazel leaf oil ( It is part of a mixture with methyl linolenate (*FEMA 3411*) which is used as a flavouring ingredient in condiments and spices.
