Raspberry ketone is a natural phenolic compound that is the primary aroma compound of red raspberries.

Raspberry ketone occurs in a variety of fruits, including raspberries, cranberries, and blackberries. It is biosynthesized from coumaroyl-CoA. It can be extracted from the fruit, yielding about 1–4 mg per kg of raspberries.

Raspberry ketone is sometimes used in perfumery, in cosmetics, and as a food additive to impart a fruity odor. It is one of the most expensive natural flavor components used in the food industry. The natural compound can cost as much as $20,000 per kg. Synthetic raspberry ketone is cheaper, with estimates ranging from a couple of dollars per pound to one fifth of the cost of the natural product.

Usage: Pharmaceutical Intermediates
