About ESM

It all starts with an egg…

Welcome to ESM Technologies®, the leading supplier of commercialized eggshell and eggshell membrane wellness ingredients.


Our mission is to help individuals achieve the joy of a positive attitude by helping them experience a better overall quality of life. We do this through the introduction of the best, unique, natural, and healthy products derived from eggshells and eggshell membrane in an environmentally friendly fashion.

ESM Technologies Environmental Commitment:

Responsibly reducing our operations environmental footprint is ESM Technologies founding principle. Our company was born out of a desire to find additional value in eggshells left over from the egg products industry. In 2010, over 600,000 tons of eggshells were disposed of in the United States, mainly in landfills. ESM’s patented technologies make it possible to use these eggshells to improve our health, reduce waste and improve our environment; the only byproduct of our 100 percent natural manufacturing process is steam!


  • NEM® is an eggshell membrane ingredient composed of naturally occurring nutrients essential for healthy joint cartilage and tissue including glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid, as well as collagen and other proteins – all working together for one complete joint health solution. Multiple human studies show fast and continued results for joint comfort and flexibility with a small, 500 mg daily dose.



  • ESC® is one of nature’s purest, most absorbable forms of calcium from eggshells, combining a natural form of calcium carbonate with the inherent transport proteins nature requires for calcium absorption. ESC® contains many trace minerals which the body requires to support bone mineral density. It is an ingredient that comes from nature’s perfect whole-food source – the Egg.

Production Information:

ESM Technologies collects their shells from a virtually limitless supply of eggshells produced at USDA inspected liquid egg products facilities. The eggshells are transported to our facility in Southwest Missouri where the membrane is separated for NEM® and the shells are processed into eggshell calcium, ESC®.
