Methionine is one of two sulfur-containing protein genic amino acids. Methionine can be synthesized from diethyl sodium phthalimidomalonate by alkylation with chloroethylmethylsulfide (ClCH2CH2SCH3) followed by hydrolysis and decarboxylation using an environmentally friendly patented proprietary process by the feed additives business of Zeebec, known as the carbonate process. This proven complex, system results in a high quality product without the formation of waste salt, while largely avoiding pollution by waste air and water.

Methionine is an important amino acid, and is a necessary additive in animal feed. DL- methionine when added in animal feed,it can help for the rapid growth of animals at a short time, it saves about 40% in feed. In mixed feed, especially feed for birds, methionine is the first limit amino acids. The lack of methionine in livestock body may be cause of dyspepsia, weight loss, liver and kidney function abates, muscle atrophy, fur metamorphism, etc. Configurations of methionine in feed are DL-methionine,hydroxylmethionine,hydroxyl methionine calcium salt, N-hydroxymethyl methionine. In feed industry, there is a large demand of methionine, especially in the feed additives of amino acid nutritional feed, of which methionine is accounted for 60%, lysine 30% and other amino acids 10%

Special features:

  1. 1-Specially for use in monogastrics.
  2. 2-DL-methionine being pro-limiting in special poultry diets causally, its use has been pure set up for long period.
  3. 3-DL-Methionine Feed Grade make sure the enough supply of sulphur amino acids, especially of the essential methionine.
  4. 4-Jointly, diets for piglets and growing pigs can show a large shortage in methionine, especially when substancesed to get les nitrogen excretion for ecological causes.
  5. 5-Shortage of that kind could be formally fulfilled for using through DL-Methionine.
  6. 6-For furnishing methionine to ruminants.

Functions of DL- Methionine:

  • 1-Meliorate the balance of amino acid for metabolism and supplement the insufficiency of L-lysine in the feed stuff to promote the growth of livestock.
  • 2-Improve the meat quality of poultry and livestock.
  • 3-Reduce the possibility of diarrhea and help to digest.
  • 4-Enhance the body’s immune ability, effective to avoid infectious disease.
