Spinacosides C and D with a novel acetal-type substituent were isolated from the fresh aerial parts of Spinacia oleracea (Spinach) and Basella rubra (Indian spinach). Their absolute stereostructures were determined on the basis of physicochemical and chemical evidence, which included the conversion from the α-L-arabinopyranosyl moiety of a known saponin momordin I to the acetal-type substituent of spinacoside D.
