Neochlorogenic acid is a natural polyphenolic compound found in some types of dried fruits and a variety of other plant sources such as peaches.[1] It is an isomer of chlorogenic acid.

Neochlorogenic acid may have potential as a chemopreventive dietary compound.[2] Neochlorogenic acid could be involved in the laxative effect observed in prunes.[3]
