Amino acids play a crucial role in the organism’s protein synthesis and serve as building blocks for proteins. Tryptophan is obtained in the process of fermentation from raw materials. It is a key factor in the proper functioning of the nervous and immune systems. The product regulates reproduction, neurological, and anti-stress activities in the organism. Tryptophan is an expensive product but at the same time, it is indispensable for the proper functioning of the body. The desired lysine to tryptophan ratio in a high-quality diet varies between 15% (that is if lysine is 1% then tryptophan should be 0.15%) and 24%.



Tryptophan plays a crucial role in animal nutrition. The product is added to feed premixes in order to maintain the desired level of tryptophan which can be insufficient in other protein sources like soybean or rapeseed. Tryptophan is an important ingredient in feed for poultry, swine, and cows.
