Butyric Acid Analysis Service

Online Inquiry

The anaerobic microorganisms in the large intestine of mammals can ferment to produce large amounts of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), including acetic acid, propionic acid and butyric acid. Among them, butyric acid is the main nutrient of human intestinal epithelial cells. More than 95% of butyric acid in the human body is produced and absorbed in the colon. A certain level of butyric acid can keep colon cells stable, which can prevent/inhibit cancer, regulate intestinal flora imbalance and treat irritable bowel syndrome, antibiotic-related enteritis, acute and chronic diarrhea and other diseases.

In the food industry, butyric acid is present in milk, especially goat milk, sheep milk and buffalo milk. Butyric acid can be used to prepare various esters, such as methyl butyrate, etc. It has a pleasant aroma or taste and can be used as an additive for food and spices. In the chemical industry, butyric acid is also a raw material for other fine chemical products.

According to different analysis needs, Creative Proteomics provides customize exclusive butyric acid analysis services solutions for you according to your samples.
