Butyric acid is known to be the best energy source for proliferation of the enterocytes. In this way it recovers villous atrophy caused by infection or anti nutritional factors present in feed. Glycerol tributyrate is regarded to be the best source of butyric acid for animals. Specific applications however, can make glycerol monobutyrate preferential. In case short chain (polar) and medium chain (non-polar) fatty acids need to be mixed, our glycerol monobutyrate can add the missing butyric fatty acid and bridge the polarity difference by acting as an emulsifier. Also for the very young piglets and chicks glycerol monobutyrate might be preferential to act as an emulsifier, improving ileal fat digestibility. Alike all our Animal Health products, glycerol monobutyrate is produced under the strict regulations of ISO 9001-2015 and the Feed Chain Alliance. In this way we can guarantee you the highest specified quality. In principle Proviron’s glycerol monobutyrate is a liquid, soluble in water and oil or fat. For companies that are equipped to mix powders only, Proviron also produces a solid pure glycerol monobutyrate (pure MB S). PureMB S is a free flowing white powder consisting of 60 % pure glycerol mono butyrate and 40 % silica carrier.
