aminoDat® 5.0

Deep and broad feed ingredient analysis on a global scale – at your fingertip.


Feed and nutrition represent the single largest portion of cost in producing animal protein. The tough challange is to formulate a cost-efficient diet with an amino acid content that fullfills the animal’s needs. Screening and monitoring of incoming raw materials for feed formulation is therefore indespensable to meet that target. 


AMINODat® 5.0, the most comprehensive amino acid database in the world, is designed to help you meet that challenge. It comprises the results of more than 28,000 (HPLC) complete amino acid analyzes of feed ingredients from all over the world. AMINODat®5.0 provides amino acid profiles, respective regression equations and amino acid recommendations for different species. This database is constantly updated, covers 130 feedstuffs and is the perfect tool to optimize feed formulation and benchmark the incoming feed ingredients.

Benefits of AMINODat® 5.0 at a glance

  • Using AMINODat® 5.0, you will take advantage of most up-to-date data, as it contains data of all samples collected within past five years. 
  • AMINODat® 5.0 includes the most relevant analyses based on over 140 raw materials actually used by the feed industry.
  • It provides the widest scope within the industry, as it includes over 21 000 samples from all over the world and is based on over 530 000 results.
  • AMINODat® 5.0 is the most comprehensive database of digestibility coefficients, as it includes updated and expanded coefficients for pigs and poultry
  • In addition to mean values, AMINODat® 5.0 includes information about the minimum, the maximum, the number of samples analyzed and the coefficient of variation –because these values make the difference.

What's in it for you?

First introduced in 1997, AMINODat® is now recognized worldwide as the reference database for the amino acid composition of feed ingredients. From the initial version to today’s AMINODat® 5.0, the constant has always been a painstaking pursuit of precision. Carefully collected by our own global team, the samples that make up our database undergo wet chemical analysis according to international standard methods. What follows is thorough evaluation by an expert team. That is why you can depend on AMINODat® for the best available information on the amino acid composition of feed ingredients.
