Chemical Information
FooDB NameEthyl propionate
DescriptionEthyl propionate belongs to the class of organic compounds known as carboxylic acid esters. These are carboxylic acid derivatives in which the carbon atom from the carbonyl group is attached to an alkyl or an aryl moiety through an oxygen atom (forming an ester group). Ethyl propionate exists in all eukaryotes, ranging from yeast to plants to humans. Ethyl propionate is a sweet, fruity, and grape tasting compound. Ethyl propionate is found, on average, in the highest concentration within milk (cow). Ethyl propionate has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as white wine, red wine, black elderberries (Sambucus nigra), evergreen blackberries (Rubus laciniatus), and figs (Ficus carica). This could make ethyl propionate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Ethyl propionate, with regard to humans, has been found to be associated with several diseases such as autism, irritable bowel syndrome, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and clostridium difficile infection; ethyl propionate has also been linked to the inborn metabolic disorder celiac disease. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Ethyl propionate.
