Quality Assurance
Albion pioneered the use of Fast-Fourier Transforming Infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) as a validation technique of mineral chelates. This technology measures the bond energy between the ligand and mineral to ensure full and proper chelation. Albion remains the only mineral company that can guarantee each batch of mineral bisglycinate chelates have the molecular signature indicating that chelation has actually occurred. Our choline is produced in a U.S. facility that is certified SQF/GSFI Level 2 and is the first and only choline that has been USP verified under third party audit.

R&D Efforts/Clinical Substantiation
The results of past and ongoing studies conducted by Albion scientists, and studies conducted by renowned third-party institutions using Albion minerals, have resulted in data from approximately 200 scientific studies (in animals and humans), 85 human clinical trials and 125 peer-reviewed, published studies. We also partner with leading choline experts at distinguished academic research centers to investigate and validate the many benefits that VitaCholine offers for human health.

Future Goals
Balchem Human Nutrition and Pharma will continue to increase its leadership in the future of mineral forms and delivery systems, as evidenced by the expansion of the company’s staff of R&D scientists, investment in research and the addition of a new in-house cell biology lab. We set ourselves apart by investing in science to help the industry stay strong.
