Don’t step into the trap
We can help you avoid traps by providing evidence that 65 units of MetAMINO® will achieve comparable performance* to 100 units of MHA-FA. Change to MetAMINO®, take the savings and benefit from additional advantages.

MetAMINO® Benefit Calculator
Do you want to calculate the savings with MetAMINO®(DL-methionine feed grade)? We have three different calculators at your fingertips depending on your needs.
- The MetAMINO® Value Calculator for cost-effective purchasing of your methionine source
- The Nutritional Value Calculator to assess digestible Met+Cys : Lys ratios depending on the source and level of methionine supplemented in the diet
- The Feed Mill Value Calculator to assess mixing time and mill throughput when utilizing either liquid MHA-FA or dry DL-methionine

In the MetAMINO® ATLAS, Evonik has summarized the results of 15 performance trials that were conducted around the globe under different climatic and agricultural conditions. The MetAMINO® ATLAS provides a balanced selection of academic research and field trials with feed for broiler chickens, laying hens, swine and fish.

A significant amount of research has been conducted to investigate the relative bioavailability of supplementary methionine sources for animal feed. These studies consistently report a bioavailability of around 65% MHA-FA when compared to DL-methionine on a product basis (Jansman et al. 2003 ; Lemme and Petri 2003 ; Rademacher et al. 2007 ; Sauer et al. 2008 ; Lemme 2010 ; Htoo and Rademacher 2012 ; Lemme et al. 2012 ; Lemme et al. 2020). Evonik continues to investigate the biological difference between MHA-FA and DL-methionine, as you can see below in our latest peer-reviewed articles.
Utilization of Methionine Sources for Growth and Met+Cys Deposition in Broilers. Animals 10:2240

This evaluation of the utilization of supplemental Met sources for Met+Cys deposition in body protein provides further evidence for a higher efficiency and, thus, nutritional value of DL-Met over HMTBA.
Bioavailability of the calcium salt of DL-methionine hydroxy analogue compared with DL-methionine for nitrogen retention and the preference of nursery pigs for diets based on the two forms of methionine. Journal of Animal Science 98(12): 1-10
Wang, M. Q., L. T. T. Huyen, J. W. Lee, S. H. Ramos, J.K. Htoo, L.V. Kinh, M.D. Lindemann. 2020
This study demonstrates the mean RBV of MHA-Ca to DL-Met of 65.7% on a product-to-product (wt/wt) basis or 78.2% on an equimolar basis.
Effects of DL-methionine and a methionine hydroxy analogue (MHA-Ca) on growth, amino acid profiles and the expression of genes related to taurine and protein synthesis in common carp. Aquaculture 532: 735962
Zhou, Y., He, J., Su, N., Masagounder, K., Xu, M., Chen, L., Liu, Q., Ye, H., Sun, Z. and Ye, C. 2021
This study indicates that dietary DL-Met or MHA-Ca supplementation could increase free essential amino acids in serum, as well as improve taurine synthesis and protein synthesis in common carp. Multi-exponential regression analysis showed that MHA-Ca was less utilized by common carp than DL-Met with bioavailability values of 41% to 50% on weight-for-weight basis.
