Chlorogenic acid is a family of naturally occurring organic compounds. These are esters of cinnamic acids and (-) -quinic acid. It is an important biosynthetic intermediate. It also is one of the phenols found in coffee, bamboo Phyllostachys edulis, as well as many other plants. This compound, long known as an antioxidant, also slows the release of glucose into the bloodstream after a meal.
It is also an antioxidant and an inhibitor of the tumor promoting activity of phorbol esters. Chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid are antioxidants in vitro and might therefore contribute to the prevention of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and cardiovascular disease. It is claimed to have antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal effects with relatively low toxicity and side effects, alongside properties that do not lead to antimicrobial resistance. Potential uses are suggested in pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, feed additives, and cosmetics.
Chlorogenic acid is marketed under the tradename Svetol in Norway and the United Kingdom as a food active ingredient used in coffee, chewing gum, and mints to promote weight reduction.
