For more than 40 years, Balchem has perfected the art of protecting nutrient quality and viability through its patented encapsulation technology called Shure™ Technology. Today, Balchem’s Shure™ Technology protects more than 140 different products across human, animal and industrial applications.
In 1999, Balchem’s Animal Nutrition and Health Division was formed to bring the benefits of their Shure™ Technology to animal agriculture. Balchem’s Shure™ Technology allows nutrients to be delivered to targeted locations consistently and efficiently within the animal’s digestive system.
In the case of ruminants, microencapsulation allows nutrients to bypass the rumen for delivery to the small intestine. Because the rumen degrades almost everything it encounters, protecting critical nutrients through microencapsulation is essential in order to meet the nutrient requirements of today’s high producing dairy cows.
In 2011, Balchem leveraged its growing expertise in encapsulation technology to refine and improve its manufacturing processes. These advancements have provided improvements in nutrient concentrations and has placed it best in class cost position for delivering encapsulated nutrients to livestock.
Commitment to Animal Nutrition and Health
Balchem brings a history of significant research and development to the animal industries.
As the leader in encapsulation technology, Balchem continues to improve on this technology to provide the most consistent and effective Precision Release ingredients available today.
As part of the commitment to precision feeding advancements and to animal agriculture, Balchem’s innovations will be realized as delivering both savings and improved performance to livestock producers, making precision feeding cost-effective for the entire industry.
The Balchem family of products continues to expand in order to meet the needs of dairy, poultry, swine and aquaculture.
AMINOSHURE-L® Precision Release Lysine, a highly concentrated, encapsulated source of lysine for dairy cow rations..
REASHURE® Precision Release Choline helps transition cows maintain energy balance and minimize metabolic disorders during this time period.
NITROSHURE™ Precision Release Nitrogen delivers nitrogen to the rumen in proper proportion to carbohydrates for the production of high-quality microbial protein in ruminants.
NIASHURE™ Precision Release Niacin provides a nutritional solution to help cattle handle heat stress.
KEYSHURE® Chelated Minerals used in animal feed throughout the world, utilizing our proprietary chelation technology for enhanced nutrient absorption for various species of production and companion animals.
VITASHURE C® Precision Release Vitamin C uses encapsulation to protect vitamin C from typical losses during feed processing and storage and to deliver the vitamin C in a highly bioavailable manner, in ruminants, non-ruminants and aquatic species.
CHOLINE CHLORIDE An essential nutrient for animal health, predominantly in the poultry and swine industries, Choline plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat and in building and maintai cell structures. Choline deficiency can result in, among other symptoms, reduced growth and perosis in chicks; fatty liver, kidney necrosis and general poor condition in baby pigs.
