CHINESE COMPANY PRODUCING L-CYSTEINE FROM SUGAR

Posted on March 22, 2017 by The VRG Blog Editor

CJ CheilJedang has announced the launch of l-cysteine using raw sugar and glucose as raw materials, “while the majority of manufacturers in the market are using” a process that starts with duck feather as a raw material. The company noted that there was an unstable supply of l-cysteine due to reinforcement of the governmental regulations in China. Cysteine and its derivatives are used for reaction flavors, bakery, and pet food items. See:
