Amino acids play a crucial role in the organism’s protein synthesis and serve as building blocks for proteins. Methionine is one of those crucial amino acids enabling the translation of the rest of the amino acid profile. It serves as a key that allows the other amino acids to fulfill their function.
Methionine is also in charge of protein stabilization.
Methionine is an important ingredient in animal nutrition. The product is added to feed premixes in order to maintain the desired level of methionine which can be insufficient in other protein sources like soybean or rapeseed.
Methionine is an essential ingredient allowing for complex protein synthesis. It allows the animal to use the rest of the amino acids. High-yielding cows need increased levels of methionine for milk production. The product also results in fewer health disorders and a lower number of pregnancy losses. In a piglet diet, methionine is partially responsible for creatine synthesis. Added to poultry feed, methionine allows for increased egg production, muscle mass buildup, and a healthy digestive tract.
The shelf life of Methionine is 3 years. The product should be stored in a dry environment at a temperature below 30 °С.
Foodcom S.A. supplies methionine available in 25kg bags and so-called big bags.
