Hesperetin is the 4′-methoxy derivative of eriodictyol, a flavanone. Hesperetin’s 7-O-glycoside, hesperidin, is a naturally occurring flavanon-glycoside, the main flavonoid in lemons and sweet oranges. Hesperetin (and naringenin, the parent flavanone of naringin) are not found to a significant extent in Citrus spp.
