Methionine is an essential amino acid and a basic structural element of proteins. Animals can’t synthesize methionine on their own, so synthetic sources must be added to the feed. Adisseo offers two Rhodimet forms: Rhodimet AT88, a concentrated liquid source of hydrroxy methionine that is particularly well suited to modern, feed factories and integrators and Rhodimet NP99, a powder source for use in premixes or in non-automated feed factories. Adisseo has positioned itself as the market reference and meets all customers’ needs by offering the two forms.

Methionine is an essential amino acid for all animals, but they do not produce it themselves, meaning they have to get it from their feed. The methionine content of natural ingredients is generally low, so to meet the animals’ requirements, additional methionine must be provided in their feed as a nutritional feed additive. Methionine deficiency in animals can cause muscle atrophy, slow growth, decreased bone strength, and fatty liver.

Adisseo is a major player on the methionine market, and seeks to fully meet all customers’ needs by offering two different methionine products – one liquid, the other solid:

  • Rhodimet AT88, a concentrated liquid source of hydroxy- methionine that is particularly well suited to large and medium-sized modern feed millers and integrators.
  • Rhodimet® NP99, a powder source for use in premixes, minerals and some compound feeds.

Adisseo gathers the international scientific and technical community every year in order to share research progresses on sulphur amino acid metabolism.

Animal feed professionals such as feed millers, premixers and integrators derive several benefits from using Rhodimet® products:

1. Improved nutritional balance in feed

It is essential that feed consumed by animals should boost their biological mechanisms. Rhodimet® products serve as valuable supplements to most diets, in which amino acid content is generally naturally unbalanced. Adding methionine to feed increases its nutritional value, leading to increased body mass and muscle growth for the animal.

2. Lower feed costs

Feed accounts for nearly 2/3 of the total cost of animal production. Using Rhodimet® products in feed helps bring down overall feed costs by reducing consumption of protein-rich raw materials.

3. Safety and reliability ensured

Rhodimet® products are manufactured using Adisseo’s own patented chemical synthesis process in high-capacity, fully automated facilities capable of meeting global demand. Rhodimet® products are also manufactured in compliance with safety and environmental standards (OSHAS, ISO 14000), and both production and marketing operations are ISO 9002 and FAMI QS certified.

Feed your Performance. As a liquid form of methionine, Rhodimet® AT88 also improves feed productivity in plant facilities. Rhodimet® AT88 has an efficacy value of 88% DL-Methionine. It has been scientifically tested by Schothorst Feed Research (2014) and Bangkok Animal Research Center (2013) and supported by zootechnical results in large integrators for more than 20 years. It increases the flexibility of feed formulation processes, lowers feed costs and attenuates variations in animal production performance. Moreover, Rhodimet® AT88 is an organic acid with a pKa of 3.60, similar to formic acid (3.75), lactic acid (3.86) and propionic acid (4.87). Acidifying and anti-microbial properties are among the benefits you will enjoy when you formulate animal diets with Rhodimet® AT88. Finally, Rhodimet® AT88 is an effective nutritional feed additive which can improve broiler performance and poultry producer profitability in hot countries.

Feed your Savings. Rhodimet AT88 is the most economical source of methionine because it reduces storage space requirements, simplifies incorporation, enables extensive automation and eliminates the need to recycle packaging. Rhodimet® AT88 brings significant savings of up to 14% when you switch from DL-Methionine to DL-HMTBA. In addition, besides providing a source of methionine, Rhodimet® AT88 is an acid has many other positive effects on feed, animals and food. Like other organic acids, it reduces gastric pH. Other benefits are mold inhibition, which boosts feed safety, and pathogenic bacteria inhibition to regulate the bacteria population. Finally, Rhodimet® AT88 improves the productivity of feedmills.

Feed your Peace of Mind. Using Rhodimet® AT88 simplifies production processes and enables greater automation, while complying with good manufacturing, safety and industrial hygiene practices. It provides an elegant solution to the problems associated with handling additives in feed plants, particularly when it comes to unloading storage facilities, transferring the additives from place to place, weighing, batching and mixing. Moreover, several services proposed by Adisseo to complement Rhodimet® AT88 make it a safe, easy-to-use product: performing injections for better accuracy and homogeneity in feed, tailor-made dosing equipment, and nutrition guides, to name but a few… Adisseo offers Rhodimet® DiMension, a comprehensive service and support program, to ensure seamless conversion from DL-Methionine to Rhodimet® AT88. And with Adisseo’s liquid application system and engineering know-how, you can expect the same homogeneity in feeds as in DL-methionine. Finally, Adisseo gives you access to nutritional expertise as well as scientific and technical knowledge, so that you can achieve cost-effective feed formulations that make optimum use of Rhodimet® AT88.
