VitaCholine® is the gold standard in choline salts and is used in infant formula, prenatal multivitamins, fortified foods, and many other products.
VitaCholine® is the premier source of choline, made to the highest standards in order to deliver consumers relevant and compelling health benefits.
While there is an immense body of animal research demonstrating that higher levels of choline lead to improved cognitive function throughout life, well-designed human research models are more difficult to conduct and take much longer.
Our Choline products could solve your formulation challenges and shape a healthier tomorrow!
What is Choline?
Choline is an essential nutrient for health
First recognized by the Institute of Medicine in 1998, recent studies indicate that more than 90% of people aren’t getting enough choline from diet alone.
Our VitaCholine® brand of choline salts were used in a groundbreaking clinical study which showed significant brain benefits for babies born to moms who received supplemental choline during pregnancy.

The Essential Brain Nutrient
A recent Cornell University Research Study shows that when mom gets double the recommended level of choline from diet and supplementation with VitaCholine® during pregnancy, her child’s brain performance improves significantly.
We are focused on improving health benefits in three key therapeutic areas – cognition, healthy metabolism, and vitality.
We offer a broad range of products, including choline bitartrate, choline chloride, and choline dihydrogen citrate which can be used in a wide range of product applications.
