Metabolite Identification
Common NameBromine
DescriptionBromine, also known as BR2 or brom, belongs to the class of inorganic compounds known as homogeneous halogens. These are inorganic non-metallic compounds in which the largest atom is a nobel gas. Bromine is found, on average, in the highest concentration within a few different foods, such as brazil nuts (Bertholletia excelsa), yellow bell peppers (Capsicum annuum), and red bell peppers (Capsicum annuum) and in a lower concentration in mugworts (Artemisia vulgaris), black walnuts (Juglans nigra), and wild carrots (Daucus carota). Bromine has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as broccolis (Brassica oleracea var. italica), pears (Pyrus communis), apples (Malus pumila), bilberries (Vaccinium myrtillus), and common grapes (Vitis vinifera). This could make bromine a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Bromine.
