In the feed mill, pellet production is generally the most energy consuming step. Therefore, any potential area of optimization is beneficial to pursue. Several studies by Adisseo have shown that the addition of a liquid source of methionine (OH-Methionine) may lead to power savings of up to 13% compared to the powder form (DL-Methionine) when pelleting.
