Dihydrophloroglucinol is a chemical compound found in the pathway of the microbial degradation of phloroglucinol and other phenolic compounds.[1]

The enzyme phloroglucinol reductase uses dihydrophloroglucinol and NADP+ to produce phloroglucinol, NADPH, and H+. It is found in the bacterium species Eubacterium oxidoreducens.[2]
