|Product name:||L-Glutamic Acid|
|Molecular Formula: ||C5H9NO4 |
|CAS No.: ||56-86-0|
L-Glutamic Acid occurs as a white, free-flowing, crystalline powder. It is slightly soluble in water, forming acidic solutions. The pH of a saturated solution is about 3.2.
Glutamic acid (Glu) is one of the basic amino acids of nitrogen metabolism in organism, and it is of great significance in metabolism. L-glutamic acid is one of the main component of protein. L-glutamic acid is one of the structural amino acids of protein or peptide, and it is also a free amino acid.
In food industry, monosodium glutamate is a common food freshener, and its main component is sodium glutamate. In medicine, glutamic acid is mainly used in the treatment of hepatic coma, but also used to improve children's intellectual development.
L-glutamic acid is mainly used in the production of monosodium glutamate, perfume, salt substitute, nutritional supplement and biochemical reagent. L-glutamic acid itself can be used as a drug to participate in the metabolism of protein and sugar in the brain, and promote the oxidation process. In vivo, L-glutamic acid can synthesize nontoxic glutamine with ammonia node, which can reduce blood ammonia and alleviate the symptoms of hepatic coma.
