E626 — пищевая добавка, усилитель вкуса: гуаниловая кислота, guanylic acid (Е626)

Guanylic acid also known as GMP is a nucleotide composed of guanine, ribose and one phosphate group formed during protein synthesis. It is an ester of phosphoric acid with the nucleoside guanosine. Commercially it is produced from dried fish, yeast extract, or dried seaweed. It produces an odourless, colourless white crystal or crystalline power that is slightly soluble in water, and is used as a flavour enhancer in food.

Not listed for use in Australia. Guanylic acid is a natural acid, which is part of RNA, one of the genetic carrier molecules in the cell. It is thus part of all cells in all living organisms. Asthmatic people should avoid guanylic acid and guanylates. As guanylates are metabolised to purines, they should be avoided by people suffering from gout.
