Sodium Butyrate: a New Technology for Taste Masking and Gastro Protection


Sodium Butyrate is a salt derived from butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid naturally produced in the colon through the fermentation of dietary fibers by the intestinal microbiota. This compound plays a crucial role in maintaining intestinal health, acting as the primary energy source for colon epithelial cells and promoting the repair and regeneration of the intestinal mucosa.


Benefits and Applications

Sodium Butyrate is known for its multiple benefits, including:

  • Improving intestinal health: Contributes to maintaining the integrity of the intestinal barrier, preventing the entry of pathogens and harmful substances.
  • Anti-inflammatory effect: Reduces inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, useful in conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and chronic inflammatory bowel diseases.
  • Supporting the immune system: Promotes the balance of the intestinal microbiota and supports immune functions.


Challenges in Supplementation

Despite its benefits, the supplementation of Sodium Butyrate presents some challenges:

  • Unpleasant odor and taste: The characteristic odor and taste of Sodium Butyrate can make direct intake difficult.
  • Gastric stability: The lability of the active principle during gastric transit requires protection to ensure efficacy.
