Abstract

After consumption of onions or garlic, biological profiles of human urine samples show, in the methylated conjugate fraction, peaks corresponding to the methylates of N-acetyl-S-(2-carboxypropyl) cysteine (1), N-acetyl-S-allylcysteine (2) and hexahydrohippuric acid (3). The compounds 1 and 2 are metabolites of peptides introduced with onions or garlic into the body.
