Chelated Minerals for Human Nutrition

Albion® is the leading supplier of chelated minerals as raw materials for inclusion in premier human nutrition products. At Albion, science and patented technology have been combined to create an organic molecule in a form the body can readily assimilate. These special organic forms of inorganic mineral elements are mineral amino acid chelates. Albion’s amino acid chelates used in mineral supplements and food fortification provide complete organic mineral nutrition, giving your customers the greatest chance to absorb the minerals for their best biological advantage.

Our Science Makes all the Difference

Long known as The Mineral People™, Albion is in the business of making very specific molecules backed by sound science and research. We’ve been making chelated minerals for more than 50 years. Albion is renowned for its science and recognized as a world leader and innovator in mineral amino acid chelate nutrition. Years of extensive research, clinical analysis, third-party critiques, and careful laboratory manufacturing enable Albion to produce a fully reacted and highly effective chelate. In fact, we are the only chelate manufacturer that can scientifically prove our molecular structure! By identifying a unique "fingerprint" for each molecule we develop, our customers know Albion minerals are what we say they are: true mineral amino acid chelates.

Albion is a privately owned company that has been granted more than 100 patents in the field of mineral nutrition. Albion’s team of distinguished scientists includes published researchers who have addressed scientific congresses throughout the world. We innovated the Albion TRAACS® range of organic mineral products containing chelated macro and trace minerals designed to provide optimal health, absorption, quality, and return on investment.

Many companies around the world incorporate Albion’s amino acid chelates in their own product brands. These include dietary supplement companies, pharma companies, and food & beverage companies.

If it’s not an Albion chelate, how can you be sure it’s really a chelate?
