Metabolite Identification
Common NameAnethole
DescriptionAnethole belongs to the class of organic compounds known as anisoles. These are organic compounds containing a methoxybenzene or a derivative thereof. Anethole is a sweet, anise, and balsam tasting compound. Anethole is found, on average, in the highest concentration within a few different foods, such as anises (Pimpinella anisum), star anises (Illicium verum), and fennels (Foeniculum vulgare) and in a lower concentration in sweet marjorams (Origanum majorana), sweet basils (Ocimum basilicum), and peppermints (Mentha X piperita). Anethole has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as sweet bays (Laurus nobilis), gingers (Zingiber officinale), lemon balms (Melissa officinalis), ceylon cinnamons (Cinnamomum verum), and herbs and spices. This could make anethole a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Anethole.
