Saudi Arabia Butyric Acid Market – Overview

Butyric acid, along with acetic acid and propionic acid, is one of the three most prevalent short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) in the stomach. Around 90–95% of the SCFAs in the gut, which are created when gut-friendly bacteria break down dietary fiber, are made up of these saturated fatty acids. Butyric acid is used to give buttery overtones to food tastes, and its esters are frequently used as food additives to boost fruit aroma. Butyric acid naturally exists in very small and inconsequential levels for gut health in butter, hard cheeses (like parmesan), milk (particularly goat's and sheep's), yogurts, cream, and some other fermented foods (including sauerkraut, pickled cucumbers, and fermented soy products).
