State-of-the-art, patent-pending encapsulation technique enables a more consistent and available source of lysine for ruminants
ADM (NYSE: ADM), a global leader in animal nutrition, recently announced the launch of NutriPass L, an encapsulated lysine supplement that is rumen-stable and intestinally available to cows.
“NutriPass L gives producers an edge by improving the return on investment of nutrients fed,” said Brad Dalke, vice president, ADM Animal Nutrition. “Through effective encapsulation, NutriPass L supplies a consistent and stable supply of metabolizable lysine for lactating cows and growing cattle.”
Lysine is an essential amino acid that must be provided through feedstuffs, since cows do not produce it naturally. Lysine is a biological building block that supports improved production performance in lean tissue gain, milk components and milk volume. Per 100 grams of product, NutriPass L has been shown to meet or exceed net delivery of metabolizable lysine when evaluated against comparable products.
Encapsulating lysine makes it possible for producers to supply a balanced, cost-effective diet, through the reduction of higher cost protein ingredients in the ration. NutriPass L supports optimal milk production, animal growth and creates opportunities for nutritionists to limit nutrient wastage in rations.
“ADM uses a proprietary matrix encapsulation technique to manufacture NutriPass L,” said Brian Lammers, PhD, dairy nutritionist, ADM Animal Nutrition. “Our process enables a lysine product that is uniform in shape and size with a protective coating, aspects that promote improved mixing capability and high intestinal release.”
NutriPass L can be mixed with a wide variety of feed ingredients and forages. It is manufactured in the United States at an advanced production facility under stringent quality-control measures and is formulated with domestically sourced ingredients.
NutriPass L joins ADM’s expansive portfolio of livestock nutrition-based technologies and feed solutions. For decades, ADM has supported the animal nutrition market with specialty feed additives, premixes and compound feeds. Learn more about NutriPass L by visiting www.admanimalnutrition.com/nutripass
