Food-Grade Amino Acids
Purity, Safety, Efficacy.
Food-Grade Amino Acids Solutions
It's no exaggeration to call amino acids "earth and human friendly" as they are natural materials born from the very essence of life. As the first to market amino acids, Ajinomoto has been a pioneer using amino acids, and is committed to exploring its virtually limitless performance characteristics.
We manufacture amino acids to the highest standards of purity and quality. This means we’re registered by, compliant with, or certified by all the appropriate quality standards: cGMP, JP, USP, EP, DMF, JDMF, CEP, ICH, CFR, and ISO. And that’s just for starters — because we maintain our own internal benchmarks that are, quite simply, second to none.
Milling & Blending
With our cGMP blending and pulverization services, we can produce amino acid blends to your exact specifications – so you can optimize production space, decrease analytical testing, and improve inventory management.

Manufacturing & Packaging
Part of our job is to make your job as easy as possible. So once we create top-quality amino acids using our advanced fermentation manufacturing process and patented production technology, we make them available to you in the quantities you need.
In addition to Standard Bulk packaging — 20 kg, 25 kg, and 50 kg sizes — we offer exactly the same pharmaceutical-grade amino acids in smaller 1 kg and 10 kg polyvinyl pails for R&D, product and process development, and clinical trials.
