Abstract

The principal acid in the highly acidic fruits of Garcinia cambogia has bwn identified as (-)- hydroxycitric acid. This acid has not been encountered in nature before. Fruits of two other species of Garcinia were found to contain the same acid, and the leaves of Hibiscus cannabinas, (+)-alla-hydroxycitric acid, an isomer reported earlier in Hibiscus sabakri@k Wide occurrence of hydroxycitric acid in nature is thus indicated.
