Butyric Acid

Butyric acid (Butanoic acid) Butyrate is produced in the colon through microbial fermentation of dietary fiber. Butyrate is then primarily absorbed and metabolized by colonocytes and the liver for the generation of ATP during energy metabolism; however, some butyrate is absorbed in the distal colon
