Key Characteristics

Butyrate is a short chain fatty acid salt with beneficial biological functions and health effects.  Buty-Ca™  (API: Butyrate) is the salt of butyric acid with the following characteristics: 

1)     Non-hygroscopic and odorless, Buty-Ca™ does not deliquesce or volatilize;

2)     Processed through a revolutionary coating technique, Buty-Ca™ is further separated from moisture, leading to its non-deliquescence, non-oxidization, and non-emission of  peculiar smells.

3)     Processed through revolutionary coating technique, Buty-Ca™ is produced with high API concentration, which contributes to a lower application cost at customers’ end. Buty-Ca™ is micro-granulated at a range of particle sizes from 0.6 mm to 0.25 mm, resulting in its tastelessness, less dust and more operator-friendliness;

4)     Buty-Ca™ is known as the most cost-effective feed formulation of butyric acid.

5)     Buty-Ca™ is effective and safe to all animal species including swine, chickens and ducks. It is known to be the only fatty acid having effective anti-diarrhea function.
