Amino acids (feed)

Components for the feed industry


Most commonly used in the form of betaine hydrochloride or anhydrous betaine. According to scientific studies, the addition of betaine to feed improves the health, production results and quality of the meat of fed animals. In addition, betaine has a positive effect on energy metabolism in the animal’s body. In turn, in poultry nutrition, betaine has a significant impact on regulating animal hydration


This amino acid takes a significant part in protein metabolism which directly impact on growth in poultry and pigs. Lysine is fully digestible and allows the use of feed with a lower protein concentration compared to feeds not supplemented with lysine. Lysine is the most commonly used amino acid in animal nutrition


Complementary to lysine, is involved in the metabolism of proteins in the animal’s body. Threonine supports the functioning and structure of the digestive system. Threonine also has a significant impact on strengthening the animal’s immune system


Is involved in numerous metabolic processes in the animal’s body. The addition of methionine is especially recommended when using soy-based feed because of its poor presence in this raw material. Methionine feed supplementation reduces the high concentration of total protein in the feed, which translates directly into the digestibility of the feed and reduces nitrogen excretion into the environment


The addition of tryptophan to the feed optimizes production cost. Tryptophan, especially in piglets and sows, significantly increases feed intake. In addition, tryptophan noticeably strengthens the immunity of animals and their growth in more difficult farming conditions


Together with methionine forms a group of sulfur amino acids. In addition to improving the growth of farm animals, cysteine is also part of the diet of pets. In dogs, cysteine affects the condition of the fur. To some extent, cysteine allows you to synthesize taurine, which is particularly important in the diet of cats


Has anti-inflammatory properties. Glycine also supports liver regeneration in the animal’s body and thus contributes to the proper metabolism of many nutritional components of the animal’s diet. Glycine effectively affects the digestive system of animal organisms
