Metabolite Identification
Common NamePhenoxyacetic acid
DescriptionPhenoxyacetic acid, also known as phenoxyacetate or POA, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as phenoxyacetic acid derivatives. Phenoxyacetic acid derivatives are compounds containing an anisole where the methane group is linked to an acetic acid or a derivative. In humans, phenoxyacetic acid is involved in the rosiglitazone metabolism pathway. Phenoxyacetic acid is a sweet and sour tasting compound. Phenoxyacetic acid has been detected, but not quantified in, cocoa and cocoa products and cocoa beans (Theobroma cacao). This could make phenoxyacetic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Phenoxyacetic acid is a primary metabolite. Primary metabolites are metabolically or physiologically essential metabolites. They are directly involved in an organism’s growth, development or reproduction. Based on a literature review a small amount of articles have been published on Phenoxyacetic acid.
