Metabolite Identification
Common NameAceteugenol
DescriptionAceteugenol, also known as eugenol acetate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as phenol esters. These are aromatic compounds containing a benzene ring substituted by a hydroxyl group and an ester group. Aceteugenol is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Aceteugenol is a sweet-, carnation-, and clove-tasting compound. Outside of the human body, aceteugenol is found, on average, in the highest concentration in a few different foods, such as cloves, Ceylon cinnamons, and sweet bay. Aceteugenol has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as nutmegs, herbs and spices, cumins, star anises, and lemon balms. This could make aceteugenol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Aceteugenol is a flavouring agent found in Caraway, oil of clove (Syzygium aromaticum), cinnamon leaf (Cinnamomum verum), and other essential oils.
