L-Aspartic Acid, CAS# 56-84-8, is a amino acid manufactured through fermentation, available as White crystalline powder. L-Aspartic Acid is widely used as nutrition supplements. It is widely accepted as safe food additive in many countries.
No significant side effects reported. When taked in large amount, High doses of L-ASPARTIC ACID can cause irritation of the mouth, throat, and digestive tract along with nausea and vomiting in specific groups of individuals.
As L-Aspartic Acid is widely known as safe, there is no limit on dosage of intake. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of L-Aspartic Acid for long period.
Special groups refer to newborns, children, pregnant and any other applicable vulnerable groups.
There is no evidence that L-Aspartic Acid could have any negative effects on these vulnerable groups. It should be safe to use L-Aspartic Acid in food for newborns and pregnant. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of L-Aspartic Acid for long period in food for newborns or pregnant.
Generally recognized as safe(GRAS) is a FDA designation that a specific substance or ingredient is generally considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements. L-Aspartic Acid is considered safe by FDA according to existing data and granted GRAS status.
No breaking news or public health crises reported about L-Aspartic Acid reported up to now.
