Gallocatechol or gallocatechin (EGC) is a flavan-3-ol, a type of chemical compound including catechin, with the gallate residue being in an isomeric trans position. It is one of the antioxidant chemicals found in food.
This compound possesses two epimers. The most common, (+)-gallocatechin (GC), CAS number 970-73-0, is found notably in green tea. Other sources of (+)-gallocatechin are bananas, persimmon and pomegranate. The other enantiomer is called (-)-gallocatechin or ent-gallocatechin.
