BUTYCAPS – Technical Data Sheet

BUTYCAPS: Food supplement containing Microencapsulated Tributyrin.


Figure 1. Tributyrin


Tributyrin is a triglyceride containing 3 molecules of butyric acid. Tributyrin releases butyric acid molecules when it is hydrolyzed by lipase enzyme.

BUTYCAPS are non-chewable granules. To achieve microencapsulated tributyrin and get solid microspheres, we use solid fats at room temperature: Fully hydrogenated sunflower oil, mono and diglycerides of fatty acids (E-471).

Total hydrogenation allows the physicochemical objectives pursued while containing a practically insignificant amount of trans fat, less than 0,1% (0,08% exactly)

The microencapsulation technology of BUTYCAPS allows a slower and gradual release along the intestine.
