The Color of Effectiveness with ButiPEARL™
Based on the fact that butyrate salts (sodium and calcium butyrates) are water soluble and have an alkaline pH, a test was developed to show how ButiPEARL protects butyrate. This test involves the use of a pH indicator to capture the color change in the test solution.
How It Works
- This test solution is affected by the rate of release of butyrate salts.
- A quick change in the color of the test solution from BRIGHT ORANGE TO PURPLE indicates a rapid release of butyrate from the sample.
How to Interpret the Results
The less protected the butyrate is, the faster the solution will change its color.
