γ-aminobutyric acid appearance for lobular crystals (methanol-ethyl ether), and needle crystals (water-ethanol), easy to dissolve in water, slightly soluble in hot ethanol, is relatively high safety, has good water solubility and thermal stability can be used in medicine, health products, food, and other fields.
