Pure polyglutamic acid product description

Gamma-poly-glutamic acid (y-PGA) is a mucoadhesive amino acid polymer, which was first discovered in natto and can be produced by microbial fermentation. Its structure is a polymer in which glutamic acid units form peptide bonds through α-amino and γ-carboxyl groups. It is divided into two sizes according to molecular weight: high molecular weight (HM) of about 1000 kDa and low molecular weight (LM) of about 10 kDa. Polyglutamic acid is generally in the form of sodium salt.
