Chemical Information
FooDB Name3-Hydroxymandelic acid
Description3-Hydroxymandelic acid, also known as m-hydroxymandelate or MHMA, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as 1-hydroxy-4-unsubstituted benzenoids. These are phenols that are unsubstituted at the 4-position. 3-Hydroxymandelic acid is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). 3-Hydroxymandelic acid has been detected, but not quantified in, milk (cow). This could make 3-hydroxymandelic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
