L-Glutamic acid, the appearance is white crystal powder, is the optically active form of glutamic acid with the L-configuration. It is one of the 20 protein amino acids, the amino acids used in protein biosynthesis. L-glutamic acid is a coded amino acid in protein synthesis, a non-essential amino acid in mammals. It can be converted from glucose in the body. L-glutamic acid powder is a very common food additive and medicine. Meanwhile, it also has a wide range of uses in industrial and agricultural fields. 

Main Applications of L-Glutamic Acid Powder

  • L-glutamic acid powder is used as a salt substitute, nutritional supplement, and umami agent.
  • Used in brother and soups for convenience food.
  • For beverages, bakery products, meat, meat sausages, milk and dairy products, flavorings, cereal products.
  • Used as a nutritional supplement.
  • It can be used as a preventive agent for the crystallization of magnesium ammonium phosphate in canned aquatic products such as shrimp and crab.
  • L-glutamate is used to improve the bitterness of beer, and can also be used as a salt substitute, nutritional supplement, and flavor enhancer.
  • L-glutamic acid monosodium salt has a strong umami taste of meat and is the most consumed flavoring agent in the world besides sugar and salt.
  • L-glutamic acid is a non-essential amino acid, which is metabolized in the body. It is easy to lose the amino group and undergo a transfer reaction with keto acid to synthesize other amino acids. After eating, 96% of L-glutamic acid can be absorbed by the body, so it can be used as one of the raw materials of nutritional supplements and used clinically.
  • L-glutamic acid itself can be used as a drug, participating in the metabolism of protein and sugar in the brain, and promoting the oxidation process. This chemical combines with ammonia in the body ti form non-toxic glutamine, which can reduce blood ammonia and relieve the symptoms of hepatic coma.
  • In combination with antiepileptic drugs, it can treat petit mal and psychomotor seizures.
  • Usually not used alone, but used synergistically with phenolic and quinone antioxidants to obtain a good synergistic effect.

Glutamate can keep the PH of the skin constant. Since its structure has different groups, it is relatively simple to exchange active ions on it. In addition, this structure helps to bind water molecules within the skin, thereby moisturizing the skin and keeping it hydrated. It also forms a film around the hair shaft, protecting the hair from any external damage. It is used in all hair care products, body care products and anti-aging products.

Glutamate is a key compound in cellular metabolism. In humans, dietary protein is broken down by digestion into amino acids that serve as metabolic fuel for other functions in the body. A key process in amino acid degradation is transamination, in which the amino group of an amino acid is transferred to an α-keto acid, usually catalyzed by transaminases.
