Valine is an amino acid and an important component of many proteins. The human organism is not able to produce valine, therefore valine belongs to the essential amino acids, which must be taken in through food. The required daily dose is about 1.6 g.
Valine is also the starting material for the production of pantothenic acid and is therefore of great importance for the function of nerve and muscle tissue. It is a component of energy drinks and of infusion solutions for parenteral nutrition.
