About 100 participants, from diverse Korean food and pharmaceutical companies participated in the presentation and asked numerous questions related to food/dietary supplement applications of amino acids. Key questions were directed to sport applications, sarcopenia, as well as some semi-essential amino acids such as arginine and glutamine.
