Glycine (Abbreviated Gly) is one of the 20 amino acids. It is widely used in the pharmaceutical, feed and food processing industries.
As food additive, it is mainly used as flavoring, sweetener and nutritional supplement. It is also added in butter, cheese and margarine for prolonging the storage life.
As feed additive, it is added in the feed for increasing the appetites for the poultry and the domestic animals, especially for pets.
As pharmaceutical intermediate, Glycine is used as the raw material of cephalosporin, aureomycin buffer, VB6 and Threonine etc. and the intermediate of thiamphenicol . When Glycine is used in combination with aspirin, it can reduce irritation to the stomach. Glycine is also used in amino acid injection solution as nutritional infusion.
Glycine is also the main raw material for the synthesis of the herbicide Glyphosate.
