Amino Acids
  • L-Lysine: ADM Animal Nutrition produces two forms of supplemental lysine for use in the feed and pet food industry, L-lysine Monohydrochloride 98.5 percent Feed Grade and L-lysine Liquid 50 percent Feed Grade. L-lysine offers a cost-effective way to supplement feedstuffs that are low or deficient in lysine. Primarily used in swine and poultry diets, L-lysine also meets supplementation needs in aquaculture diets, and can benefit dairy cattle and pet diets as well. In equine diets, L-lysine can be used in feeds and supplements particularly for foals and young, growing horses. Transported in bulk and applied with a computer-controlled metering system, L-lysine Liquid 50 percent offers a viable alternative to traditional dry L-lysine. Supplementing diets with L-lysine and L-threonine, which helps reduce dietary crude protein, can also lower nitrogen excretion into the environment and improve nitrogen efficiency.   
  • L-Threonine: ADM Animal Nutrition’s L-threonine 98.5 percent Feed Grade is a highly purified, granular form of supplemental L-threonine. Used with L-lysine, L-threonine usage enables diets to be formulated closer to animals’ amino acid requirements which helps reduce dietary crude protein, decrease nitrogen excretion into the environment and improve nitrogen efficiency. Research supports increasing the use of supplemental L-threonine in swine, poultry, aquaculture and pet diets.
  • Tryptophan: ADM Animal Nutrition supplies tryptophan as a cost-effective way to supplement feedstuffs that are low or deficient in tryptophan. As dietary crude protein is reduced, tryptophan usage may be required to formulate diets—primarily swine diets—closer to the animals’ amino acid requirements.
  • Isoleucine: ADM Animal Nutrition supplies isoleucine as a cost-effective way to supplement feedstuffs that are low or deficient in isoleucine. As dietary crude protein is reduced, isoleucine usage may be required to formulate diets—primarily swine and poultry diets—closer to the animals’ amino acid requirements.
  • Valine: ADM Animal Nutrition supplies valine as a cost-effective way to supplement feedstuffs that are low or deficient in valine. As dietary crude protein is reduced, valine usage may be required to formulate diets—primarily swine and poultry diets—closer to the animals’ amino acid requirements.
