Betaine is a multifunctional nutrient supporting important metabolic functions. Betaine or trimethylglycine, is a zwitterionic (neutral molecule with bipolar structure) quaternary ammonium compound, with the chemical formula: (CH3) 3N + CH2COO- .

First discovered in the juice of sugar beets (Beta vulgaris), betaine occurs in many other plants (spinach, wheat, broccoli) animals (shrimps, shellfish, crabs) and microorganisms.

Characteristics Natural betaine

  • Scientifically proven effect in various areas
  • As an organic osmolyte confers protection against cell stress - restores and maintains cellular integrity and functionality, and it prevents dehydration, especially in hot climatic conditions.
  • As a methyl group donor, betaine provides methyl groups for synthesis of numerous substances, intermediates in protein, fat and energy metabolism, and it is involved in the DNA methylation.
  • Furthermore, betaine is utilized with high efficiency in fermentation processes, in order to increase the output of the final product
  • Multiple applications: Courtesy to its native properties, Betaine has multiple applications in various industrial sectors.

Positive properties for humans

  • Promotion of well-being and performance
  • Increase resilience and strength
  • May improve the immune response

Positive features for animals

  • Improved performance, high quality end-products
  • Enhanced gut health- lower litter moisture content, lower mortality
  • Better production efficiency


Natural Betaine generated from the sugar beet:

  • crystalline form (92-99% betaine) - Betaine anhydrous & Betaine monohydrate (in Food and Feed Grade Quality)
  • liquid form (32- 40% betaine)- Feed Grade Quality

Advantages of crystalline betaine

  • Higher purity of the product extends application possibilities
  • Easy handling, no storage tanks necessary
  • "NATURAL" product
