Numerous scientific studies, in addition to field results in integrators and feed mills for more than 40 years are supported this 100% efficacy value.
All methionine sources available on the market (L-Methionine, DL-Methionine and OH-Methionine) when supplemented on an active molecule basis, are equally effective in improving growth performance of poultry and swine species.
Rhodimet® AT88 gives you more!
- An organic acid with a pKa of 3.4
- It can partially prevent broiler performance decrease in heat-stress conditions
- For swine in specific nutritional strategies: improvement of sows and piglets performance
To know more, watch the following videos about Rhodimet® AT88:
|Methionine sources characteristics |
Dr. Yves Mercier and Dr. Dolores Batonon Alavo are presenting the two main sources of synthetic methionine available for feed producers: DL-Methionine and DL-HMTBA, their main differences and how they are all converted into L-methionine and absorbed by animals.
|Bio efficacy of Rhodimet® AT88 |
Dr Dolores Batonon Alavo is explaining the methodology to compare accurately the efficacy of hydroxy-methionine and DL-methionine to sustain animal performance. With this method, we have shown that hydroxy-methionine is 100% active and promotes animal growth performance in the same way than DLM.
|Rhodimet® AT88: More than a methionine sources |
Hydroxy-methionine has added values and specificities compared to DL-methionine. Dr Yves Mercier is illustrating the advantage of hydroxy-methionine in heat stress conditions for broilers performance and Dr Dolores Batonon Alavo is presenting the positive effect of hydroxy-methionine on lactating sows with an enhanced milk quality available for suckling piglets.
Focus on value of Rhodimet® AT88 for swine
In swine diets, total sulfur amino acids (TSAA) are considered as secondary limiting amino acids. However, the requirement in methionine should not be underestimated to ensure optimal performance. Moreover, extra performance or meat quality can be obtained by adjusting the supplementation of hydroxy-methionine, Rhodimet® AT88 during the rearing phases.
