Is L-Glutamine Fermented? (How We Make Gut L-Glutamine)
There are 4 primary ways to make amino acids like L-Glutamine: extraction, enzymatic reaction, chemical synthesis and natural fermentation. So which is best for glutamine? Let's find out!

To answer this question, we're going to look at our Gut L-Glutamine powder. Since we know exactly how it's made.
So the first thing to know is that there are a couple ways you can make amino acids like L-Glutamine.
- You can make amino acids by extraction
- It's also possible to make them via enzymatic reaction
- And you can even produce amino acids by chemical synthesis
But for Gut L-Glutamine we avoid ALL those methods.
Instead we use an innovative process of natural fermentation that consistently produces the highest quality L-Glutamine.
And if you want to spend 10 seconds geeking out with us:
- Gut L-Glutamine is produced by fermentation of plant-based materials, namely glucose, which is a type of sugar.
- But it is not a fermented product in the sense that say sauerkraut, kimchi or kombucha are. Meaning, L-Glutamine itself is not fermented, but rather produced by fermentation.
- And just in case you’re wondering: there is no glucose or sugar, in the end product.
