Glutamic acid, being a constituent of protein, is present in every food that contains protein, but it can only be tasted when it is present in an unbound form. Glutamic acid is often used as a food additive and flavor enhancer when it is sold as its salt monosodium glutamate (MSG). The structure of glutamic acid is given below. Determine the site of deprotonation and convert the structure to the sodium salt. The answer's carbon skeleton is provided to give you a head start on the answer, just fill it in the rest of the way. Label acid, base, conjugate acid, and conjugate base.
