Aspartic acid, also called asparaginic acid, is one of the nonessential amino acids. “Nonessential” means that our bodies produce it even if we don’t get this amino acid from the food we eat.
Amino acids are the building blocks for proteins. Proteins have many functions in our bodies. Enzymes are a type of protein.
Aspartic acid is found primarily in sugar cane and molasses.
