What is Glycyrrhizic Acid Ammonium Salt

Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt, white needle crystal or crystalline powder, has a strong sweetness, 50 to 100 times as sweet as sucrose. Melting point 208~212℃. Soluble in ammonia, insoluble in glacial acetic acid.

Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt has a strong sweetness and is about 200 times sweeter than sucrose. It is usually used as a sweetener in food additives and is used in canned meats, seasonings, candies, biscuits, preserved fruits and beverages. Monoammonium glycyrrhizinate has a strong affinity for sterol metabolism enzymes in the liver, thereby hindering the inactivation of cortisol and aldosterone. After use, it shows obvious corticosteroid-like effects, such as anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and protective membrane structure. No obvious corticosteroid-like side effects.


What is the purpose of glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt?

Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt can be used in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

The application proportions of Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt in various industries are as follows: 26% for pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, 70% for food, and 4% for cigarettes and others.

In terms of food:

1. Soy sauce: Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt can not only improve the saltiness to enhance the inherent taste of soy sauce, but also eliminate the bitter taste of saccharin and have a synergistic effect on chemical flavoring agents.

2. Pickles: Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt and saccharin are used together to pickle pickles, which can eliminate the bitter taste of saccharin. During the pickling process, shortcomings such as fermentation failure, discoloration, and hardening caused by less sugar can be overcome.


3. Seasoning: Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt can be added to pickling seasoning liquid, seasoning powder or temporary seasoning during meals to increase sweetness and reduce the strange smell of other chemical seasonings.

4. Bean paste: Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt is used to pickle herring in small sauce, which can increase the sweetness and make the taste uniform.

In terms of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics:

1. Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt is a natural surfactant, and its aqueous solution has weak foaming properties.

2. Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt has AGTH-like biological activity and has strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory functions. It is often used to treat mucosal diseases. When used in oral hygiene products, it can prevent dental caries, mouth ulcers, etc.


3. Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt has wide compatibility. When used in skin care products, it can enhance the efficacy of other active substances in sun protection, whitening, anti-itching, conditioning, and scar healing.

4. Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt is a compound composed of horse chestnut saponin and aesculin, which is used as a highly effective antiperspirant.

What are our advantages?

Glycyrrhizic acid ammonium salt is a high-purity natural sweetener with a sweetness about 200-300 times that of sucrose. Through technological improvements and process upgrades, Unilong industry has eliminated the bitterness and other undesirable flavors in monoammonium glycyrrhizinate, making the sweetness more pure and lasting.
