Product Detail


Used in pharmaceutical, food additives, nutrition enhancer

1. Used in pharmacy, food additives, nutrition enhancer
2. Used in biochemical research, medicine for hepatic coma, preventing epilepsy, reducing ketonuria and ketemia.
3. Salt substitutes, nutritional supplements, umami flavor agents (mainly used in meat, soup, poultry, etc.). It can also be used as an inhibitor of magnesium ammonium phosphate crystals in canned aquatic products such as shrimps and crabs, with a dosage of 0.3% to 1.6%. It can be used as a spice according to my country’s GB 2760-96 regulations.
4. L-glutamic acid is mainly used in the production of monosodium glutamate, spices, as well as salt substitutes, nutritional supplements and biochemical reagents. L-glutamic acid itself can be used as a medicine to participate in the metabolism of protein and sugar in the brain and promote the oxidation process. The product combines with ammonia in the body to form non-toxic glutamine, which reduces the blood chemicalbook ammonia and reduces the symptoms of liver coma. Combined with antiepileptic drugs, it can still treat minor epilepsy and psychomotor seizures.

It is made from soybean, corn and other plants by decomposition reaction. It is light yellow powder as main material of amino acid fertilizers with high mobility and solubility. It does not only have the efficacy of absorbing,  neutralizing pesticide, but also can significantly remit and increase the anti-injury capacity after absorbed by plants. Meanwhile the ability of resisting drought, cold, frost, water logging is very obvious. It can also be used directly as foliar fertilizer, fertilization, base fertilizer.

Glutamic acid as an important nutrient for human growth, not only has a special physiological role, but also has a unique feature in the food industry;Glutamic acid as a flavor enhancer can be used to enhance the flavor of the beverage and food;Glutamic acid can be used as a nutritional drug. Glutamic acid for hair restorer, can be absorbed by the scalp, prevent hair loss and hair newborn. Glutamic acid to the skin, the treatment of wrinkles is curative;Glutamic acid can be used in medicine, because glutamic acid is one of the amino acids of protein. Although it is not essential amino acids the human body, it can be used as carbon and nitrogen nutrients involved in the body’s metabolism. Glutamic acid has a higher nutritional value.
