|Product name||L-lysine monohydrochloride|
|Usage||L-lysine monohydrochloride for animal feed is a major global industry, reaching in 2009
almost 700,000 tonnes for a market value of over €1.22 billion. Lysine
is an important additive to animal feed because it is a limiting amino
acid when optimizing the growth of certain animals such as pigs and
chickens for the production of meat. Lysine supplementation allows for
the use of lower-cost plant protein (maize, for instance, rather than
soy) while maintaining high growth rates, and limiting the pollution
from nitrogen excretion. In turn, however, phosphate pollution is a
major environmental cost when corn is used as feed for poultry and
Lysine is industrially produced by microbial fermentation, from a base mainly of sugar. Genetic engineering research is actively pursuing bacterial strains to improve the efficiency of production and allow lysine to be made from other substrates.
|Dosage||200 mg/ per day|
Lysine is a feed fortification enhancer, which has the functions of enhancing the appetite of livestock and poultry, improving disease resistance, promoting wound healing, improving meat quality, enhancing gastric secretion, and is essential for synthesizing brain nerves, germ cells, proteins and hemoglobin.
Lysine is an essential amino acid in the human body. It can enhance hematopoietic function, enhance gastric juice secretion, increase protein utilization, increase disease resistance, maintain metabolic balance, and promote the development of children's physical and intellectual.
