L-threonine basic information
L-threonine is an essential amino acid, threonine is mainly used in pharmaceutical, chemical reagents, food fortifiers, feed additives. In particular, the rapid growth of the amount of feed additives, it is often added to the minor pigs and poultry feed, is the third limiting amino acid of the second limiting amino acid for pig feed and poultry feed. L-threonine, in the compound feed has the following characteristics:
1 can adjust the amino acid balance in the feed to promote livestock growth; 
2 to improve meat;
3 to improve the amino acid digestion and low nutritional value of feed; 
4 can reduce the cost of feed ingredients; in EU countries (mainly Germany, Belgium, Denmark, etc.) and the American States, has been widely used in feed industry.
