Dihydromorin is a flavanonol, a type of flavonoid. It can be found in plants of the family Moraceae including Morus nigra (Black mulberry),[1] in Morus alba,[2] Maclura pomifera (Maclura aurantiaca or Osage-Orange),[2] in the jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus)[3] and in Artocarpus dadah.[4]

Dihydromorin is an inhibitor of tyrosinase.[3]
