Ferulic acid is extracted from rice bran oil and is one of the most powerful natural anti-oxidants. Ferulic acid is a natural chemical that is found in the cell walls of plants and is called phytochemicals, that are found in an ample range of plant species. The official name of this product is 4-hydroxy-3-methoxycinnamic acid. Ferulic acid is a phenolic acid of low toxicity and is present in free form in seeds and leaves of plants and is a ubiquitous natural phenolic phytochemical. It is conjugated covalently, to the polysaccharides, polyamines, lignins, glycoproteins, fatty acids and cell wall. Ferulic acid provides rigidity to the cell wall and is the precursor or intermediate in the formation of organic compounds like, vanillin, sinapic, coniferyl alcohol, curcumin, and diferulic acid. Ferulic acid possesses numerous physical functionalities including anti-inflammatory, anti?cancer, antimicrobial, anti?thrombosis, antioxidant, antiallergic, and hepatoprotective. Ferulic acid is the prime and effective component of Chinese medicine herbs such as, Cimicifuga heracleifolia, Angelica sinensis, and Lingsticum chuangxiong. It has been also reported to increase the sperm viability and protective against coronary heart diseases as it lowers the level of cholesterol in the body. Ferulic acid is prepared by two types, by biological transformation, thus called as the natural ferulic acid and by chemical synthesis, which is called as synthetic ferulic acid.
Ferulic acid possess physical functionalities such as anticancer, antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, hepatoprotective, and antiallergic. Owing to these physical functionalities, the application area of ferulic acid is very wide. Ferulic acid is widely used in production of food products, cosmetics and pharmaceutical intermediates. It exhibits high antioxidant properties, thus used in production of cosmetics, especially sunscreens. Owing to the increasing temperature worldwide, the use of cosmetics has increased; ultimately driving the market growth. Ferulic acid is known to lower cholesterol levels and prevents from coronary diseases, thus widely used in production of packaged healthy food products. Ferulic acid is used as intermediates and building block for the preparation of active pharmaceutical ingredients which has fuelled the market growth through increased pharmaceutical demand due to increasing prevalence of diseases.
