Pinobanksin is an antioxidant bioflavonoid (specifically a flavanonol, a category of flavonol) that inhibits peroxidation of low density lipoprotein and it has electron donor properties reducing alpha-tocopherol radicals.[citation needed] It is present in sunflower honey.[1]

Pinobanksin is biosynthesized from pinocembrin.
