Cynarine is a hydroxycinnamic acid and a biologically active chemical constituent of artichoke (Cynara cardunculus).[1]

Chemically, it is an ester formed from quinic acid and two units of caffeic acid.

It inhibits taste receptors, making water (and other foods and drinks) seem sweet.[2]

It is an ingredient of the drug Sulfad.
