Isoferulic acid is a hydroxycinnamic acid, a type of organic compound. It is an isomer of ferulic acid.

Occurrence in nature[]

Isoferulic acid can be found, amongst other compounds, in Lobelia chinensis.[1] An analysis of propolis from Henan, China found sinapinic acid, isoferulic acid, caffeic acid and chrysin, with the first three compounds demonstrating antibacterial properties.[2]

In food[]

Ferulic acid is found in pineapple flesh.[3]
