New grade of L-valine approved in the EU
On April 30, 2021, L-valine produced by Corynebacterium glutamicum CGMCC 7.358 was authorized by the European Union. Previously, the EU had approved Daesang Europe’s production of L-valine using Escherichia coli KCCM 80159. Glowlit shows a wide spread in prices of Valine in different regions of the world and from different sources. However, as more products are approved, we expect that prices will even out.
Folic Acid Prices Vary Around the World
Over the last three weeks, Glowlit has seen steady increased interest in Folic Acid though not yet rising to the level of a unique activity notification. Globally, Glowlit is seeing a wide gap in prices ranging from 32 to 40 USD/KG. This is often the case when interest in a product increases and information is unevenly distributed among market players.
