Sodium Chloride-Glycine Mixture

Sodium Chloride-Glycine Mixture

Salt, or sodium chloride, has been used by mankind before recorded history as a mineral of paramount importance in regulating health, as well as in seasoning food.

Glycine is structurally the simplest of the 20 amino acids that combine to form proteins, possessing a single hydrogen atom in its molecular side chain. Among the earliest of the amino acids to be isolated, this sweet-tasting, organic compound is commonly found in gelatin.
