Your Nutraceutical BCAA Manufacturer
Your BCAA formula must be blended to ensure even distribution of ingredients in each supplement.
Once all ingredients in your formula are blended, they are filled in your bottle or bag of choice. We offer some amazing packaging options to fill your supplement with.
Each bottle is polished for a clean finished look and triple inspected for any defects
After the supplement is manufactured, post-inspection, we run identity, potency, micro, and heavy metal tests to ensure pharmaceutical grade quality.
Custom Nutraceutical BCAA Manufacturing
We have capabilities to manufacture any nutraceutical BCAA formula. From sourcing each ingredient in your formula, to post filling inspection; we do it all at the best prices and the fastest lead times. We have the experience to help you formulate a new product for your target audience, or discuss with you how to properly scale your manufacturing. As your partner, it is our job for long-term BCAA manufacturing success.
Custom BCAA Manufacturing
BCAA has been around the supplement industry for numerous years. At SMP Nutra, we have the capabilities to manufacture any custom nutraceutical BCAA formula.
What is BCAA?
BCAA is a chemical compound commonly used in supplements.
BCAA stands for Branch Chain Amino Acid and it is a very important requirement for the body to produce energy. This energy can easily be found in several natural meat products. However, the primary use of BCAA is in gyms where bodybuilders use it to meet their dietary requirements for a rapidly growing body. This is because they are at a much higher rate than a normal human being and therefore require more energy which this amino acid provides.
Sources of BCAA
BCAA is amino acids which almost always can come from animals.
The main ingredient in BCAA supplements is the BCAA itself which is an amino acid. Naturally, the manufacturers turn to other creatures that have this amino acid in them several different animals make the list. These include specific parts of their like fur, swine, feather, and hair. The process seems a bit too much to take and the vegetarians do not like this version at all.
To meet the growing demands of a vegetarian supplement, the process also involves using plant-based BCAA which is most commonly present in corn. Some allergy-related issues occurred in the beginning but now special plants that are specifically free from allergy-causing elements are being grown. The result is a BCAA source that you can rely on to be 100% plant-based.
The Multiple Types of BCAA
BCAAs can be broken down into two categories: proteinogenic and non-proteinogenic.
The two types of BCAAs include proteinogenic and non-proteinogenic. Each is a subclass that holds specific chains of amino acids. The difference between the two types is one is a protein amino acid and one is not.
Proteinogenic BCAAs include:
The non-proteinogenic amino acids include:
- 2-aminoisobutyric acid
What is Leucine?
Leucine is a proteinogenic BCAA.
Ieucine is a essential amino acid that is used in the natural production of protein in our bodies. Being an essential amino acid, that means it is not produced naturally in the body so we must ingest it from our diet. Some sources of leucine include:
- Dairy products
- Soy products
What is Isoleucine?
Isoleucine is a proteinogenic BCAA.
Similarly to leucine, isoleucine is an essential amino acid that must be apart of your diet. Isoleucine can be synthesized from a process that inlvolves invoking the biosynthesis of multiple other amino acids, and it starts with pyruvate and alpha-ketobutyrate.
Additionally, isoleucine can be man-made in a lab. This process will include both 2-bromobutane and diethylmalonate.
What is Valine?
Valine is a hydrophobic proteinogenic BCAA.
Valine is quite similar to leucine. It is an essential amino acid that must be ingested through our diet and it has the same sources which includes:
- Dairy products
- Soy products
What is 2-Aminoisobutyric Acid?
2-Aminoisobutyric acid is a rare non-proteinogenic BCAA.
This BCAA is very rare, it is only found in some antibiotics of fungal origin and some lantibiotics. This is most commonly synthesized in a lab. The general process involves taking acetone cyanhydrin and introducing it to ammonia, followed by hydrolysis.
This type of BCAA is not often used, but it does have its own set of characteristics that would lead you to believe this is the best BCAA for your product.
