So, what is ethyl urocanate?

Ethyl urocanate is a flavoring agent commonly used in the food industry to impart a fruity and nutty taste to various products. This colorless liquid is derived from the chemical compound urocanic acid, which is found in human skin and animal tissues. Ethyl urocanate is often added to baked goods, confectionery, and beverages, and is known for its pleasant aroma and flavor. It is also used as a natural preservative due to its antimicrobial properties. Despite its widespread use in the food industry, there is ongoing research into the potential health benefits and drawbacks of ethyl urocanate.
