Albion is a science and research based company. At the cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars, Albion has conducted clinical studies that prove its raw material selection and manufacturing processes produce effective, absorbable chelates. Given the possibilities in process variation, few companies can use clinical studies and research to prove their process and their product. It is extremely rare that a company will prove that their product is fully reacted or even that an effective chelation process has taken place.
Some industry manufactures use the term mineral “chelate” more casually. It gives consumers a false understanding of what a “chelate” is and implies there is no difference between companies claiming to offer fully reacted chelates.
Through precise manufacturing processes, carefully controlled conditions, and carefully monitored state-of-the-art facilities, a proven, fully reacted mineral chelate can be created. This process is unique not only for the type of manufacturing process but for each specific nutritional mineral being chelated. This is why Albion has acquired over 100 patents to date on chelation-related manufacturing processes. With the highest quality chelated mineral ingredients on the market, Albion is the world leader in mineral nutrition.
