Evonik announces to increase its price of MetAMINO® (DL-methionine 99%)
Evonik increases its net price of MetAMINO® (DL-Methionine 99%, feed grade) by up to nine percent globally with immediate effect. However all existing contracts and supply agreements will be honoured.
MetAMINO® ensures the adequate supply of sulfur amino acids, particularly the essential methionine. Because methionine is first-limiting in typical poultry diets, its use has been well established for many years. Additionally, diets for piglets and growing pigs can show a considerable deficiency in methionine, especially when formulated to achieve low nitrogen excretion for ecological reasons. Such a deficiency can be conveniently compensated for by using MetAMINO®.
Some animals require methionine in an adapted form. For the aquaculture industry, Evonik's dedicated DL-Methionine for AquacultureTM has smaller particles as a result of our crystallization process. Shrimp and prawns are bottom feeders, so feed pellets and extrudates must be stable in the water to perform. AQUAVI® Met-Met meets this requirement, and adds further value thanks to its unique properties: low leaching and slow release in the gut. To supply methionine to ruminants, Evonik offers its Mepron®, a rumen-stable form of methionine.
