Food Funct 2020 Mar 6;11(3):2058-2066. Epub 2020 Mar 6.

South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, Adelaide, Australia.

3-Carboxy-4-methyl-5-propyl-2-furanpropanoic acid (CMPF) is a metabolite of furan fatty acids found in plasma and urine of humans after consumption of foods containing these fatty acids. Recently, CMPF has been identified as a prominent metabolite following the consumption of either fish oil, fish oil fatty acid-ethyl esters or diets rich in fish. As furan fatty acids are known to occur in fish and fish oils (at a low level), it is possible that in these studies the CMPF in plasma originated from furan fatty acids. Read More
