Methionine
Methionine is an essential amino acid that is not synthesized by animals, so it must be obtained from their diets. Methionine is traditionally available as: D,L-Methionine (DLM) and Methionine Hydroxy Analog (MHA). Globally, 98% of methionine produced is used as an animal feed additive. Methionine may also be produced from renewable sources. In such cases, it may be referred to as Bio-Methionine or Green Methionine. Methionine is mainly derived from petrochemical sources. However, biochemical routes have been researched. For instance, companies such as CJ Bio, Arkema, Metabolic Explorer and Roquette developed processes for bio-based Methionine production.
