Redox Amino Acid supplier CJ Cheil Jedang (CJ) has started producing L-Methionine in its plant in Malaysia with a capacity of 80,000 tonnes per annum.
The company is utilizing an environmentally-friendly bio-fermentation process which uses raw sugar and grape sugar as raw materials. CJ discovered this process after 8 long years of research and development.
L-Methionine developed by CJ Cheil Jedang, has been recognized for its superior bio-availability.
The production of 80,000 tons per year will change the world’s Methionine market landscape, which is currently dominated by older technology, petroleum-based DL-Methionine.
Methionine, which has a global market size of US$5 billion, makes up the biggest part of the total essential amino acid market for animal feed, along with lysine, which has a market size of US$4 billion.
The plant producing L-Methionine is located in the coastal city of Kerteh, Malaysia and is therefore well positioned to capitalise on growing demand in Asia.
