Chemical Information
FooDB NameDimethyl tetrasulfide
DescriptionDimethyl tetrasulfide belongs to the class of organic compounds known as sulfenyl compounds. These are organosulfur compounds a sulfenyl group with the general formula RS (R = organyl). Dimethyl tetrasulfide is a cabbage, garlic, and meaty tasting compound. Dimethyl tetrasulfide has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as cauliflowers (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis), welsh onions (Allium fistulosum), mushrooms, oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus), and garlics (Allium sativum). This could make dimethyl tetrasulfide a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review very few articles have been published on Dimethyl tetrasulfide.
