Amino acid balancing requires the right combination of Lysine and Methionine. Kemin is the only supplier to offer both essential and complementary products to allow amino acid balancing in a reliable way. At the same time, we are also constantly looking for ways to innovate and further improve our customers’ outcomes. That is why we are proud to launch a new era in amino acid implementation.
KESSENT™ M offers improved precision in the formulation, efficiency and sustainability of dairy producers’ operations. KESSENT™ M is the best source of metabolisable (rumen-protected) Methionine for ruminants and is delivered by our encapsulation and core technology. This product has been scientifically proven and consistently tested under field conditions. It is also supported through Kemin’s Lifelong Learning program.
When a new product is developed, it is crucial to take all the research acquired into account. The specific gravity and particle size were two of the main requirements in the development of KESSENT™ M. In adjusting the size and specific gravity of the amino acid particles, we found that it would increase the rumen escape protein proportion of concentrate feeds, as proven in a Latin square study (Dufreneix et al., 2019).
The optimal particle size and specific gravity of KESSENT™ M therefore allows it to move through the rumen rapidly, thus leading to reduced physical abrasion and microbial degradation in the rumen and consequently, increased intestinally bioavailable Methionine.
KESSENT™ M offers unbeatable particle size, specific gravity and homogeneity.
When developing our KESSENT™ M technology, a 3-step process known as Process for Rumen-Protected Amino Acids Validation Criteria was used. The 3-step process includes research conducted in vitro (in the laboratory), in vivo (in the animal) and at field level in dairy farms. The research proved greater bioavailability of KESSENT™ M compared to other available rumen protected Methionine products. The improved bioavailability is attributed to the particle size, specific gravity, high Methionine content and encapsulation technology.
