Butyrate is a molecule with a high potential. It has the capacity to trigger several beneficial effects in the digestive tract of humans and animals.

In humans, butyrate has been studied as a tool in the prevention and treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases and colon cancer.
In animal production, butyrate is added to the feed to improve the digestive tract development and maintenance, which is crucial to prevent disturbances linked to the challenges faced by the animals. This purpose of prevention makes it a perfect fit in today’s approach to animal production and diet formulation.
