Flavouring ingredient A thick, syrupy poisonous liquid, C5H8O2, derived from croton oil, having a spicy odor and used in making perfumes and flavoring agents.; Tiglic acid has a double bond between the second and third carbons of the chain. Together with angelic acid form a pair of cis-trans isomers. Tiglic acid is a volatile and crystallizable substance with a sweet, warm spicy odour. It is used in making perfumes and flavoring agents.; Tiglic acid is a monocarboxylic unsaturated organic acid. It is found in croton oil and in several other natural products. It was also isolated from the defensive secretion of certain beetles.; Tiglic acid is a skin and eye irritant. The inhalation of the substance causes respiratory tract irritation. It is listed on the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
