Introducing AminoShure®-M Precision Release Methionine

The Milk Protein Builder

AminoShure®-M Precision Release Methionine is the next generation in rumen-protected methionine, utilizing an all-natural lipid coating to protect it from being destroyed in the rumen. This revolutionary product was engineered to bypass the rumen and release its methionine payload gradually in the small intestine to provide a greater impact on milk protein synthesis.

Encapsulation Cut-awayNutrient Encapsulation is one of Balchem's flagship technologies. Ruminants present unique nutrition challenges because the rumen environment destroys susceptible nutrients such as choline, lysine and niacin. Balchem’s unique and proprietary encapsulation technology allows nutrients to bypass the rumen, making them available to the small intestine for absorption. Balancing rumen protection with intestinal release is the key to optimizing nutrient bioavailability and is a challenge that differentiates competing encapsulation technologies.

At Balchem, we understand that nutrient bioavailablity is the ultimate measure of an effective encapsulated nutrient. Achieving high bioavailability requires three key attributes:

  • Durability - An effective encapsulated nutrient must be durable enough to withstand the rigors of storage, mixing and handling. 
  • Rumen Protection - The primary function of encapsulation is to protect nutrients from microbial degradation in the rumen. 
  • Intestinal Digestibility - An effective encapsulated nutrient must be robust enough to withstand manufacturing and ruminal degradation while maintaining a high level of intestinal digestibility.
