A Comprehensive Knowledge of Amino Science Informing Research and Development

Before developing new ingredients, Ajinomoto examines market needs to determine the areas in which improvements can be made through the use of our amino acid technologies. Over the course of the product design and function evaluation phase, we define physicochemical properties of a substance with special attention to its safety profile. We explore and analyze the compound’s sensory characteristics, and assess the combinations and interactions with other substances. Only then do we move forward to the manufacturing and commercialization stages.
