Calcium butyrate

Calcium butyrate

Excluding Sales Tax

Butyric acid is a short chain fatty (C4) acid formed through the digestion of dietary fibers, fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. The advantage of salts over free acids is that the corrosive and unpleasant odor of the acid is muted which makes salts a lot friendlier to handle. Among the butyrate salts, calcium butyrate selectively destroys pathogens and micro-organisms. Yet, calcium butyrate also helps maintain and restore calcium balance. Common uses can be summarized as:
•    Preservative
•    Feed starter additive
•    Butyric acid carrier salt
•    Organic calcium source
•    Mold inhibitor
