A Novel Powder Formulation of the Ketone Ester, Bis Hexanoyl (R)-1,3-Butanediol, Rapidly Increases Circulating ß-Hydroxybutyrate Concentrations in Healthy Adults


Growing interest in the metabolic state of ketosis has driven development of exogenous ketone products to induce ketosis without dietary changes. BH-BD was recently developed as Metabolic Switch®, a food ingredient to induce ketosis in humans.


These results demonstrate that Metabolic Switch® in both powdered and RTD BH-BD formulations similarly induce ketosis with no differences in glucose concentrations in healthy adults.
