Chemical Information
FooDB Namexi-5-Ethyldihydro-2(3H)-furanone
DescriptionGamma-Caprolactone, also known as 4-hydroxy-hexanoate or 4-ethyl-4-butanolide, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as gamma butyrolactones. Gamma butyrolactones are compounds containing a gamma butyrolactone moiety, which consists of an aliphatic five-member ring with four carbon atoms, one oxygen atom, and bears a ketone group on the carbon adjacent to the oxygen atom. Thus, Gamma-caprolactone is considered to be a fatty ester. Gamma-Caprolactone exists in all eukaryotes, ranging from yeast to plants to humans. Gamma-Caprolactone has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as pomes, potatos (Solanum tuberosum), cereals and cereal products, milk and milk products, and fruits. This could make Gamma-caprolactone a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Gamma-Caprolactone.
