The supercontinuum generation in saturable nonlinearity (SNL) is identified to behave in a unique such that, unlike the conventional Kerr case, the effective nonlinearity of SNL does not monotonously increases with an increase in power. The broadband is observed at the shortest distance at power equal to the saturation power (Ps), whereas for all combinations of powers (P < Ps or P > Ps) spectral broadening occurs at longer distance.
