Metabolite Identification
Common NameIsoamyl salicylate
DescriptionIsoamyl salicylate, also known as orchidee or sanfoin, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzoic acid esters. These are ester derivatives of benzoic acid. Isoamyl salicylate is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Isoamyl salicylate is a bitter, floral, and herbal tasting compound. Outside of the human body, isoamyl salicylate has been detected, but not quantified in, a few different foods, such as alcoholic beverages, fruits, and tea. This could make isoamyl salicylate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
