The microbial metabolism of amino acids also leads to formation of other VFAs; butyric acid from glutamate and lysine, propionic acid from alanine and threonine, iso-butyric acid from valine, and iso-valeric acid from leucine and isoleucine.

Branch chain volatile fatty acids and ammonia are mainly products of protein fermentation while acetic, propionic and butyric acids are products of carbohydrate fermentation (Le et al.
Pipeline candidates fall under major therapeutic classes such as noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors, adrenergic uptake inhibitors, enzyme replacement therapy, dopamine agents, chelating agents and Gamma-amino butyric acid type B (GABA-B) receptor agonist
Other indicators of effective preservation include AN being less than 100 g/kg TN (Haigh and Hopkins, 1977), butyric acid lower than 10 g/kg DM (Nilsson and Nilsson, 1956), and an efficient conversion of WSC to lactic acid (Parker and Crawshaw, 1982).
