Our Choline Technology offers customized ingredient systems, enabling technologies, minerals, and essential macro & micronutrients for a variety of applications across the food, supplement, and pharmaceutical industries.
What is Choline?
Choline is an essential nutrient that our body makes in small amounts as part of a series of complex metabolic processes. Outside the body, choline salts are made via similar processes for use in foods, beverages, and supplements which can help us fully meet our needs. Balchem’s choline salts are absorbed and converted into free choline, which the body then uses to support a healthy brain, liver, and nervous system.
Our Product Solution

We offer a broad range of products, including choline bitartrate, choline chloride, and choline dihydrogen citrate which can be used in many product applications and offer choline technology to support the food, supplement, and pharmaceutical industries.
