Chemical Information
FooDB Name4-Methoxyphenylacetic acid
Description4-Methoxyphenylacetic acid, also known as 2-(p-anisyl)acetic acid or homoanisic acid, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as anisoles. These are organic compounds containing a methoxybenzene or a derivative thereof. 4-Methoxyphenylacetic acid has been detected, but not quantified in, a few different foods, such as anatidaes (Anatidae), chickens (Gallus gallus), and domestic pigs (Sus scrofa domestica). This could make 4-methoxyphenylacetic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on 4-Methoxyphenylacetic acid.
