Apiin is a natural flavonoid, a diglycoside of the flavone apigenin found in the winter-hardy plants parsley[1] and celery.[2] The glycoside moity at carbon-7 of apiin, O-β-D-apiofuranosyl(→)2-β-D-glucosyl, is carried by several other flavones in parsley plant and seed.[3] The sugar apiose possibly play a role in winter hardiness of celery, duckweed and parsley.[4]
