Product Description

Glycine Amino acid CAS  56-40-6

Glycine ,Aminoacetic acid, abbreviated as Gly or G, is the smallest molecular weight of the 20 protein amino acids. It is white or light yellow crystals, soluble in water, sweet. The side bond of glycine is a hydrogen atom. Since its alpha carbon also has a hydrogen atom, glycine is not optically isomeric. Since the side bonds of glycine are very small, they can occupy other spaces where the amino acids can not be occupied, such as amino acids within the collagen spine. In some proteins (such as cytochrome, myoglobin and hemoglobin) it changes little like evolutionary evolution, because the structure of the whole protein changes if a relatively large amino acid replaces it. Most proteins contain only a small amount of glycine, collagen is an important exception, it contains one third of glycine.

Glycine is the simplest structure in the 20members of amino acid series, also knows as amino acetate. It is a non-essential amino acid for the human body and contains both acidic and basic functional group inside its molecule. It’s white crystalline powder, odourless with special sweetness.


1) It’s mainly used as nutritional supplement and sweetness

2) It can be used in alcoholic beverage, used as an acid corrector or buffer for the composition of wine and soft beverage

3) It can be used as an additive for the flavor and taste of food, retain its original color and to provide a sourde of sweet

4) It can be used as an antiseptic agent for fish flakes and peanut jams

5) It can play a buffering role in the taste of edible salt and vinegar

6) It can be used in food processing, brewing process, meat processing and soft beverage formulas as well as in saccharing sodium in order to remove bitterness

7) It can be used as stabilizer for cream, cheese, margarine, fast cooked noodles or convenient noodles,wheat flour and pig lard

8) It can be used as stabilizer for Vitamin C in the food processing

Product expansion

1> Cosmetic Raw Materials: Cosmetics is a variety of raw materials through a reasonable deployment of processing from the compound mixture. Cosmetics with a wide range of raw materials, different performance. According to the raw material properties and uses of cosmetics, can be divided into matrix materials and auxiliary raw materials in two categories. The former is a class of cosmetics in the main raw materials, cosmetics in the possession of a large proportion of the cosmetics play a major role in the role of the material. The latter is the formation of cosmetics, stability or to give color, smell and other characteristics of the role of these substances in the cosmetic formula is not used, but it is extremely important. Cosmetics are natural, synthetic or extracted from the role of different substances as raw materials, by heating, mixing and emulsification and other production processes processed from the chemical mixture.

2> Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients(API): API refers to the raw materials in the production of various types of preparations, which is the active ingredient in powder,crystal and paste for medicine use through chemical synthesis,plant extract, and preparations of biotechnology institute.It is one substance or mixture during the medicine making period uut it can not be taken directly by patients.

3> Fragrance And Spices: Spice is a substance that can be scented by smelling or scented by taste, and is the raw material for the preparation of the fragrance. Spices are an important part of fine chemicals, it is composed of natural spices, synthetic spices and single fragrance.

4> Organic Raw Material: Intermediates are also known as organic intermediates. The use of coal tar or petroleum products as raw materials to produce dyes, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, resins, additives, and other intermediates.

5> Chemicals Used In Paints: Paint, the traditional Chinese name is paint. So-called coating is coated on the surface of the object that be protected or be adornment, and with the continuous film coating to form strong adhesion, usually in resin, or oil, or emulsion is given priority to, add or not add pigment, filler, add the corresponding additives, organic solvents or water preparation of viscous liquid.
