CaHMB β-hydroxy-β-calcium methylbutyrate and its development prospect

    When you understand the mechanism of HMB, you must ask how to use HMB to develop products. The author summarizes three kinds of products and discusses the product development ideas of HMB.

    1. Sports nutrition products
      Since the discovery of HMB in 1996, many sports nutrition brands in the international market, such as EAS, Matrix, GNC, etc., have launched HMB related products and achieved success in the market.
      Compared with foreign markets, HMB entered the Chinese market late, and its product development and application are mature enough. At present, Kangbitt, Hejian and other domestic brands have combined HMB with protein powder, for sports and fitness people launched HMB muscle strengthening products. With the demand for sports nutrition products growing rapidly, more and more companies are developing new formulations around HMB.
      Of course, policies and regulations also bring new market opportunities for HMB products. In the General Guidelines for sports Nutrition Food released at the end of 2015, HMB is clearly listed as the recommended raw material. With the improvement of domestic consumers’ cognition of HMB, the compound formula of HMB and creatine may become a new hot spot in the field of sports nutrition food development.
    2. Shaping and slimming products
      In addition, HMB also has its own unique advantages in the field of fat reduction and slimming. There are a wide variety of weight-loss products on the Chinese market, but most of them have the same formula without updating and iteration. At present, with the response of various brands to the new concept of HMB “healthy fat reduction, muscle enhancement and slimming”, enterprises can fully consider adding HMB to the existing formula to inject new vitality into the product.
      It is worth mentioning that the development of HMB in weight loss/body shaping products has also benefited from the results of HMB animal and human fat reduction experiments. Clinical trials have proved that HMB combined with moderate exercise can effectively improve body composition and achieve the effect of fat reduction, slimming and shaping. The latest research report on fat reduction of HMB will be released on March 22, 2016 at the third Technical Seminar of Giyuan Group.
    3. Special medical diet food
      As one of the world leaders in specialty medicine products, Abbott has developed a large number of products around HMB and achieved great success. In China, specialty products are just getting started. With the aging of Chinese population, it is of great significance to fully understand muscle attenuation syndrome and carry out active prevention and treatment for improving the quality of life of the elderly and reducing complications.
      As an effective nutritional intervention for the prevention and treatment of muscular attenuation syndrome, a number of clinical studies have confirmed that HMB supplementation is helpful to improve the body composition of the elderly, and can effectively prevent and treat lean body mass loss caused by long-term bedridden or hospitalization in the elderly. At the same time, HMB has been clinically proven to accelerate wound healing and inhibit inflammation. We have reason to believe that in the near future, with the further regulation of specialty medicine market regulations, HMB will become an important raw material for the development of such products.
      HMB application guide
      In commercial production, HMB is usually converted into calcium salts during synthesis for ease of storage and use. HMB calcium is white powder, slightly irritating taste, good fluidity, soluble in water, water solution is weak alkaline, water solution has not obvious bitter taste.
      HMB calcium has stable properties, high melting point (>200℃) and good thermal tolerance. Suitable for capsules, tablets, gummies, pressed candy, hard candy, solid powder products, functional drinks, fruit drinks and dairy products.
      The results showed that the content of aqueous solution containing HMB calcium did not decrease after sterilization at 121℃ and 20 minutes, and the content of HMB remained stable after 24 months of storage at room temperature.
      In addition, HMB calcium can also be used with a variety of protein, vitamin, and mineral formulations to increase product functionality. However, protein emulsion products containing HMB calcium are prone to unstable phenomena such as protein precipitation and flocculation in the process of production and storage. Therefore, it is necessary to control the pH value of solution according to the actual conditions of product formulation, and add stabilizer or ion chelating agent and other protective proteins.
      In short, as an ideal new food raw material, HMB has undoubtedly injected new concepts and vitality into the development of functional food market. HMB has good development potential and promotion prospects. It is believed that in the near future, HMB related products are bound to become a new growth point in the domestic and even the global functional food market.
