Additional Information

Aspartic Acid is a non-essential amino acid found in abundance in plant proteins and is manufactured in the body from oxaloacedic acids. Both aspartic acid and glutamic acid play important roles as general acids in enzyme active centers, as well as in maintaining the solubility and ionic character of proteins.
