Chelated Minerals for Human Nutrition & Health

Balchem’s chelated minerals brand, Albion Minerals, is the leading brand of chelated minerals for premier human nutrition products. 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; they are used in nutraceutical supplements and food fortification to provide complete organic mineral nutrition, giving consumers the greatest chance to absorb minerals for their best biological advantage.  Backed by sound science and over 150 patents from manufacturing processes to food applications, Albion Minerals is your trusted source for safe, proven, effective, organic minerals.

Chelated Minerals for Animal Nutrition & Health

Organic trace minerals come in many types and formulations; leading to confusion and misconceptions about chemistry, terminology, and methodologies used to determine quality, performance, and value. At Balchem, we strive to keep it simple; binding minerals to the highest-quality plant-protein-derived amino acids, in world-class facilities using a true chelation process.

True mineral chelation was pioneered within the Balchem family of companies nearly 60 years ago and that expertise continues today in the animal nutrition market.

Balchem Plant Nutrition (formerly Albion Plant Nutrition) is a pioneer in the research and development of mineral chelation. 

With numerous patents, Balchem Plant Nutrition is the only source of uniquely formulated amino acid chelated minerals. These patented chelated minerals are marketed under the trade name Metalosate®.
