So, what is acide glutamique?

Acide glutamique, also known as glutamic acid, is a naturally occurring amino acid that plays an important role in many bodily functions. It is commonly found in protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, and dairy products. In addition to its role in protein synthesis, glutamic acid is also involved in the regulation of neurotransmitters in the brain and the maintenance of a healthy immune system. This ingredient is often used in the food industry as a flavor enhancer due to its ability to stimulate the taste buds and enhance the savory taste known as umami.
