Alternative Solutions

Our chelated minerals and nutrients deliver on consumer-derived wellness needs for all ages. Our functional nutritional powders, extruded crisps and proteins, and other food manufacturing capabilities provide for more novel delivery forms and formats to accommodate consumers looking for nutrition outside of a pill or capsule. Albion® Minerals offer alternative solutions for consumers compared to the typical, everyday dietary supplements.

Building Better Minerals

A pioneer of chelated minerals, Albion® Minerals promotes optimal tolerability, giving consumers a bioavailable and digestive-friendly experience in their daily consumption. Greater bioavailability results in a more cost-effective solution for consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies, delivering a higher dose and reducing cost-in-use versus other forms.

We combine science and patented technology to create an organic molecule that can be easily absorbed by the human body. These special organic forms are mineral amino acid chelates; which are used in nutraceutical supplements and functional food fortification to provide complete organic mineral nutrition. This gives the consumer the greatest chance to absorb minerals for their best biological advantage.

In their ordinary form, minerals are inorganic elements and difficult for the body to absorb. Balchem does the body’s work in advance by producing natural organic chelates that can easily be absorbed through the intestinal wall. Appropriate intake levels of certain nutritive minerals have been proven to be required to maintain optimal human health. Albion® Minerals offers solutions to help!

Balchem provides solutions that delight and nourish – from indulgence and sensory experiences to the rigors of targeted essential nutrition. Engage with us to discover how our resources can enable your differentiation in the market.

These minerals offer a multitude of health benefits for people from all walks of life. We encourage you to learn more about these minerals by checking out our blog or reaching out to one of our knowledgeable representatives to see if any of these minerals can give your customers the vitality boost they seek.
