L-cysteine is the semi-essential amino acid and undergoes reaction to form an essential anti-oxidant named glutathione. The amino acid is the building blocks of muscles and is the most preferred component in health nutrition. The l-cysteine can be bio-synthesized in the human body. Its molecular formula is HO2CCH(NH2)CH2SH. It is known for its varied properties. L-cysteine is used in pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and food supplements as it acts as a reducing agent and the radical scavenger. The traditional method of l-cysteine production is sourced from the feathers and human hair. Thus the customers preferring natural source were shifted to the better substitutes. Later, to attract the vegan customers, few innovations were made in the production process named synthetic process. It facilitates the market players to expand their customers’ base.
