Taurine, CAS# 107-35-7, is a organic acid manufactured through chemical synthesis, available as COLORLESS OR WHITE CRYSTALS, OR WHITE CRYSTALLINE POWDER. Taurine is widely used as nutritional supplements. It is widely accepted as safe food additive in many countries.
Taurine postponed the replicative senescence of rat bone marrow-derived multipotent stromal cells in vitro.
As Taurine 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 Taurine for long period.
Special groups refer to newborns, children, pregnant and any other applicable vulnerable groups.
There is no evidence that Taurine could have any negative effects on these vulnerable groups. It should be safe to use Taurine in food for newborns and pregnant. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of Taurine for long period in food for newborns or pregnant.
