Responsible Products, Effective Solutions.

We aim to continuously contribute to effective and environmentally friendly livestock production through stable supply of good-quality products.

We are manufacturers and suppliers of Methionine, which is used as feed additive.

Methionine is one of the essential amino acids that cannot be synthesized in the animal body. Methionine often tends to remain at an insufficient level in livestock feeds mainly consisting of plant material. In commercial corn/wheat/soybean meal-based poultry diets, Methionine is the first limiting amino acid. Therefore, synthetic methionine sources have been utilized to satisfy the nutrient requirement and enhance the growth and production performance of animals.

Significance of Methionine

  • Building block of proteins shaping animal products such as meat, egg and milk
  • An important intermediate in the metabolic pathway such as methylation reactions and antioxidants synthesis like glutathione and taurine.
  • Deficiency in methionine consumption results in growth inhibition as well as impaired metabolism and disease shielding potential. Therefore, livestock feeds have to always satisfy the nutrient requirement for appropriate growth and health.
