Choline chloride is a quaternary ammonium salt consisting of a chloride anion and choline cation. It is a form of synthetic choline and a water soluble vitamin. The product is a white to colorless hygroscopic substance which is odorless or may have a fishlike odor. Choline chloride is widely produced by the treatment of trimethylamine hydrochloride with ethylene oxide.

Choline chloride offers various benefits to human health such as improved liver function, optimal liver health, neurological and cognitive functions which makes it ideal for human nutrition products. The human body produces insufficient amounts of choline in the form of phosphatidylcholine in the liver which does not fulfill health requirements, thereby necessitating choline supplementation from the diet. Increasing health concerns, changing lifestyles and rising disposable income should boost the choline chloride market from dietary supplements sector.

Various choline chloride manufacturers are focused on developing new products primarily to cater to growing requirement for animal feed additives. In October 2019, global food & feed ingredient manufacturer Kemin Industries launched a new product range CholiGEM which caters to the health & nutrition requirements of ruminants. This is an innovative feed ingredient which offers a greater concentration of choline chloride as compared to conventional animal feed products. This product launch provides a competitive advantage to Kemin Industries and allows it to meet growing demand for animal feed additives for improved liver function.
