Gut active butyrins for enhanced gut health

Esteried butyrins are combined molecules composed out of a glycerol structure and butyrate molecules. The final result of the esterication is a combination of mono-, di- and tributyrins which act as a source of butyrate molecules in the intestinal tract. Based on the molecules origin, it is easy to understand that these “fat-type” structures can only be digested in the presence of the digestive enzyme lipase. By definition, this guarantees full stomach bypass properties at the level of the stomach while being activated after pancreatic lipase has been added. During the esteri cation process, it is of utmost importance that the reaction is controlled carefully in order to guarantee the desired stability of the product. A correct catalyst, the right esteri cation speed and the final puri cation step need expertise and deep chemical knowledge, resulting in a high concentrated, pure and clear product with a high stability in time and during pelleting process, guaranteed without the typical smell of butyric acid.

Biolumen is the next generation of butyric acid products. The esterified technology ensures adequate target release and delivery of the active molecule throughout the intestine. Esterified butyrins are hydrolized by lipases after the crop or the stomach, splitting off free fatty acids from glycerol, releasing the needed butyric acid at the right time and in the right site of action.
