L-Glutamic Acid

Glutamic Acid is a non-essential amino acid and functions as an important neurotransmitter and as a metabolic intermediate in the Krebs cycle. It is a primary component of the savory flavor umami. Both aspartic acid and glutamic acid play important roles as general acids in enzyme active centers, as well as in maintaining the solubility and ionic character of proteins.
