Product use
L-glutamate is mainly used in the production of monosodium glutamate (MSG), flavor, as well as as substitute salt, nutritional supplement and biochemical reagent.L-glutamic acid itself can be used as a drug to participate in the metabolism of proteins and sugars in the brain and promote the oxidation process. The product is combined with ammonia in the body to form a non-toxic glutamine, which can reduce the blood ammonia of Chemicalbook and relieve the symptoms of liver coma.It is mainly used to treat hepatic coma and severe hepatic insufficiency, but the effect is not very satisfactory.Combined with antiepileptic drugs, it can still treat small seizures and psychomotor seizures.Racemic glutamate is used in the production of drugs and also as a biochemical reagent
