Zinc Methionine

Zinc 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 zinc to reach the target organs and tissues to maximize the utilization of trace minerals. At the target organs or tissues, the Zinc 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 Zinc has been well ensured as all mentioned above.

Zinc 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.

Benefits of Zinc Methionine Chelate:

Swine Piglet 1 Improving the piglet daily body gain and increasing the feed conversion rate;
2 Increasing the feed intake by improving feed palatability with enriched flavors of amino acid and faint flavor of metal;
3Improving the piglet fur condition – with better performance if using together with organic iron;
4Improving piglet immunity and disease resistance; preventing piglet nutritional anemia; increasing the survival rate.
Fattener 1 Increasing the daily body gain rate and feed conversion rate;.
2 Improving the meat quality;
3 Improving the fur condition.
Sow 1 Improving the sow physique; improving the reproduction performance and decreasing the piglet mortality;
2 Improving the sow health condition and preventing the hoof diseases including hoof cracking;
3 Improving the piglet health condition and effectively preventing the piglet anemia.
Poultry Broiler
1 Improving the quality of eggshell and increasing the egg appearance – better performance if using together with organic manganese;
