Chemical Information
FooDB Name4-Hydroxy-3-methoxybenzenemethanol
Description4-Hydroxy-3-methoxybenzenemethanol, also known as 4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzyl alcohol, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as methoxyphenols. Methoxyphenols are compounds containing a methoxy group attached to the benzene ring of a phenol moiety. 4-Hydroxy-3-methoxybenzenemethanol is a sweet, anise, and balsam tasting compound. 4-Hydroxy-3-methoxybenzenemethanol has been detected, but not quantified in, fruits and herbs and spices. This could make 4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzenemethanol a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on 4-Hydroxy-3-methoxybenzenemethanol.
