Glycine Descriptions:  Glycine is a non-essential amino acid that is produced naturally by humans and other organisms as a building block for proteins. It’s appearance is a white, odorless, crystalline powder with a sweet taste. It dissolves readily in water, slightly in ethanol, and hardly in acetone and ethyl ether. It is widely used as the main raw ingredient for flavoring, sweeteners, feed additives for pets, nutritional supplements, amino acid injection solution, herbicide glyphosate, peanut jams and preservatives for fish flakes etc.                   
       

Food Grade Glycine Application:    
           

           

1. It is used in flavoring, sweeteners and nutritional supplements.                                

2. Applied in alcoholic beverages, feed and food production processing in order to improve flavor and taste. It is also used in pickles, sweet sauce, soy sauce, vinegar and juice. Also acts as a stabilizer for cream cheese, margarine, instant noodles, wheat flour, and lard etc.
