Chemical Information
FooDB NameEthyl phenylacetate
DescriptionEthyl phenylacetate belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzene and substituted derivatives. These are aromatic compounds containing one monocyclic ring system consisting of benzene. Ethyl phenylacetate is a sweet, anise, and balsam tasting compound. Ethyl phenylacetate is found, on average, in the highest concentration within corns (Zea mays). Ethyl phenylacetate has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as citrus, alcoholic beverages, green tea, pulses, and red tea. This could make ethyl phenylacetate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Based on a literature review a significant number of articles have been published on Ethyl phenylacetate.
