DL-Alanine is a colorless to white needle crystal or crystalline powder that is odorless and has a peculiarly sweet taste. It begins to sublime above 200℃ and the melting point is 297℃ (decomposition). It dissolves readily in water(25℃, 17%), slightly in ethanol and insoluble in ether. DL-Alanine is mainly used in food processing industry for nutritional supplements and seasoning, and also used in pharmaceutical industry. DL-alanine could enhance the effect of chemical seasoning sauce. Wiith a special sweet taste, DL-Alanine can improve the artificial sweetener, the acidity of organic acid and the flavor of vinegar.
