It is an indisputable fact that the human body needs protein, but this demand is actually for amino acids. The protein in food can only be absorbed and utilized by the body after being digested and decomposed into amino acids.

It is the most widely used umami enhancer in the food industry: lysine is related to human development, immune enhancement, antibacterial, protective nerves, etc. God's physiological role in the body's first limiting amino acid: methionine is a "resistance agent" in the protein synthesis pathway, once the lack of it will lead to damage to the body. According to the latest market research data of Inovu Market Insights, the use of amino acids increased vertically in 2016, with a growth rate of 9.3%.
Amino acid supplements are increasingly popular
In 2017, the global market for amino acid dietary supplements accounted for 14%, second only to infant food and sports nutrition (see Figure 1). In addition to the eight essential amino acids that the human body cannot synthesize by itself, amino acid amino acids are once again. It confirms its popularity. Another obvious trend is that consumers are more aware of the importance of nutrients, but also pay more attention to whether the nutrient types are homogeneous, whether the ratio and proportion of nutrients are reasonable, which also drives manufacturers to continuously improve nutritional formulas and innovate research and development. Consumer needs of different tastes.
Throughout the world, how is the future development of the amino acid industry? In summary, it can be divided into the following points.
The amino acids represented by taurine have become the focus of attention, injecting new vitality into the amino acid industry.
2. Amino acids that are used for nutritional and functional purposes are growing rapidly.
3.The explosive growth of sports nutrition products provides a jumping platform for amino acids.
