Notes:
Flavouring ingredient Senecioic acid appears in the urine of patients with 3-Methylcrotonic aciduria, which is a disorder characterised by urine that contains increased amounts of 3-methylcrotonic acid (Senecioic acid). It is caused by defects in a biotin-dependent reaction that forms 3-methylglutaconic acid. (Wikipedia)
