Evonik to reveal findings from methionine trial at IPPE 2019

Evonik is launching a new White Paper at IPPE in Atlanta addressing the ongoing debate on the relative nutritional value of methionine sources in poultry diets.

The paper ‘Recent broiler trial confirms 2018 EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) scientific opinion on methionine sources while validating the experimental approach’ is by Andreas Lemme and Victor Naranjo, Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH. It examines different methionine sources under various performance parameters.

As well as reading the White Paper, visitors to IPPE 2019 can try out Evonik Animal Nutrition’s PROXYMet™; a product designed to confirm the superior nutritional value of MetAMINO® versus methionine hydroxy analog free acid (MHA-FA). Using PROXYMet™, customers can now verify the bioefficacy published in numerous studies and trials by themselves.

“Switching to MetAMINO® makes it possible to achieve optimal performance results while realizing substantial savings,” says Alfred Petri, Senior Vice President of Sales Animal Nutrition. “Only 650g of MetAMINO® is required to achieve the same nutritional value as 1,000g MHA-FA. And this is in addition to the other advantages of MetAMINO® – like ease of handling, improved miscibility and shorter batch cycles in feed production.”

People who visit Evonik – in Hall A: Feed Equipment and Animal Feed Ingredients, Booth A2525 – will also learn about the latest version of AMINONIR® Advanced, the company’s new service that analyses unground samples at the point of delivery, as well as AMINORED® 2.0, a new version of Evonik’s service to precisely evaluate soy product quality. Customers will be able to download the new AMINONews App which contains relevant information regarding animal nutrition and health.
