Taurine Safiro Nutrition


Taurine is an endogenous, sulfuric amino acid, whose natural content in the human body is relatively high, amounting to several dozen grams (approx. 1 g per kilogram of body weight). Taurine is not obtained by natural processes, the entire market's demand is satisfied by a synthetically produced product.

There are several main areas where the use of taurine is necessary. The first is the food industry, in particular the production of energy drinks. Another area where taurine consumption continues to increase is in sports nutrition. Due to the fact that in most vegan and vegetarian diets, the concentration of taurine and sulfuric amino acids is insufficient, that is why taurine supplementation is recommended for people on such diets.

In order to ensure that baby formula is properly balanced, taurine must be added. In mammalian milk the taurine content is low (also in cow's milk; whey proteins form the basis for the production of infant milk). Taurine deficiency in the early stages of life negatively affects, among others, the development of the brain and retina.

Taurine is also of great importance to animal feed manufacturers, among them the producers of cat food are definitely in the first place. Cats need large amounts of taurine for proper functioning of their nervous system and metabolism.

Taurine is an essential amino acid for cats and must be ingested with food. Taurine is also more and more often added to fodder for certain fish species (in particular salmonids) and as reenforcing additives for poultry.
