Betaine is an amino acid and is manufactured as anhydrous betaine and betaine hydrochloride that comprises of treating chloroacetic acid with sodium carbonate, and then pouring liquid trimethylamine at a certain temperature to obtain betaine crystal compound. This obtained compound is later on centrifuged and dried to obtain the betaine compound. The raw materials are extracted from sugar beet molasses. Betaine is used in the food, beverages, feed and personal care industry segments. They find extensive usage in the cosmetics industry as well. The compound has amazing water holding capacity, good nutritional value and even can serve as a methyl donor for the animal feed industry. In addition, the compound finds extensive use as detergent and diet supplements too.
