Amino acids are important not only for the functioning of the human body, they are essential components in products used in everyday life. From pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and sports supplements to food additives, animal feed and beauty products, amino acids provide value as ingredients and as final products. Redox source a wide range of amino acids that enable our customers to improve their products and better meet the demands of their consumer markets.

In their basic form, amino acids are organic compounds containing amine and carboxyl functional groups, along with a side chain specific to each amino acid. The most common elements of amino acids include carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen, with about five hundred different naturally occurring amino acids known.

Our range of amino acids are used within the food and beverage industry, either alone or in combination, as flavour enhancers and food additives. They are used extensively as elements within medicines, dietary supplements and functional foods due to their natural health benefits in both human and animal nutrition. Amino acids are also key ingredients in skin and hair care products due to their moisturising characteristics and PH levels.

At Redox, our team of industry experts recognise that great products with consistent levels of quality and safety, value for money, innovation and convenience, are the key to our customer’s success. Our experienced team provide the support and dedication that ensures your products have an edge.
