Copper Methionine

copper methionine

Copper Methionine Chelate is the third generation of trace mineral feed additives. It is manufactured with one metal ion bound to one methionine molecule which form ring compound with proper structure. This organic ring compound is very stable when passing the pre-intestinal volatile environment which allows the organic copper to reach the target organs and tissues to maximize the utilization of trace minerals. At the target organs or tissues, the Copper Methionine Chelate is absorbed as a whole molecule by the way of peptide path and amino acid path. Meanwhile, the metal ion was bound into a complete molecule and this reduces the antagonistic functions. The best bioavailability of Copper has been well ensured as all mentioned above.

On the other hand, Copper Methionine Chelate offers less ruining to other nutritional ingredients in the feed like vitamin, protein, etc. It also offers better palatability. These have improved the feed quality and feed efficiency.
