Technical Document

Brief Overview

Methionine, an amino acid abundant in sulfur, significantly contributes to the well-being and efficiency of poultry. Its importance extends to diverse bodily functions, orchestrating metabolic processes by producing methyl groups. Furthermore, it's vital for nurturing cell growth and promoting overall development.

Manufacturing Process

The process of making methionine comprises several phases:

To start, it transforms raw materials capable of producing methionine, like 2-amino-4-methylthiobutyronitrile or 2-amino-4-methylthiobutanamide, through hydrolysis within an aqueous ammonia solution. A biocatalyst aids this conversion, resulting in an ammonia solution containing methionine.

Next, the subsequent stage involves removing the biocatalyst from the ammonia solution containing methionine obtained in the initial phase.

Lastly, the third step centers on distilling the ammonia from the product obtained in the second phase to separate and collect methionine crystals.

Animal Feed Industry

DL-Methionine acts as a fundamental component for protein synthesis, playing a crucial role in the overall growth and development of animals. Its presence in plants is restricted, prompting the need for supplementary intake among herbivores like poultry and cattle. Specifically in poultry, supplementing methionine is vital, aiding not only in feather growth but also supporting various critical functions.
