At Kemin Industries, our commitment to sustainably transforming lives drives us to constantly innovate and overcome challenges in the nutraceutical industry. We are thrilled to introduce our latest breakthrough – ButiShield™, an encapsulated form of calcium butyrate designed specifically for humans, designed to fortify overall gut health. In this blog post, we'll delve into the details of ButiShield™ and explore how it addresses common challenges faced by supplement manufacturers.
The Butyric Acid Advantage:
Butyric acid, an extensively researched short-chain fatty acid (SCFA), is a key player in intestinal health, influencing overall well-being. Despite its remarkable benefits, the incorporation of butyrate into products has been hindered by formulation and operational challenges, primarily due to its unpleasant odor.
The Innovation: ButiShield™ with MicroPEARLS™ Technology
To overcome these challenges, Kemin is proud to present ButiShield™, crafted using our patented MicroPEARLS spray freezing technology. This innovative approach involves encapsulating butyric acid which ensures a sustained and controlled release along the gastrointestinal tract . Notably, MicroPEARLS™ technology also addresses the handling issue by significantly reducing the odor associated with butyric acid.
