L-Threonine, CAS# 72-19-5, is a amino acid manufactured through fermentation, available as White to light brown, crystal powder. L-Threonine is widely used as nutrition supplements. It is widely accepted as safe food additive in many countries. Is there some safety and/or health risk about L-Threonine that consumers need to know? Let's check out some basic facts about this ingredient. GRAS Exemptions: Yes Foodchem Generally recognized as safe(GRAS) is a FDA designation that a specific substance or ingredient is generally considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements. L-Threonine is perfectly safe for using as food additives. Suggested Dosage As L-Threonine is widely known as safe, there is no limit on dosage of intake. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of L-Threonine for long period. Special Groups Precaution Special groups refer to newborns, children, pregnant and any other applicable vulnerable groups. There is no evidence that L-Threonine could have any negative effects on these vulnerable groups. It should be safe to use L-Threonine in food for newborns and pregnant. However, we still recommend consumers to consult professionals before using large quantity of L-Threonine for long period in food for newborns or pregnant. General Side Effects No significant side effects reported. L-Threonine can cause stomach upset, headache, nausea, and skin rash in specific groups of individuals. Reported Health Issues No health issues about L-Threonine reported up to now. Related Research 1.
