According to the field studies, one metric ton of ‘L-lysine·HCI’ is proven to save 33 tons of soybean meal. According to the field studies, one metric ton of ‘L-lysine·HCI’ is proven to save 33 tons of soybean meal. This implicates that the estimated annual usage of ‘L-lysine’ in the world (2.2 million metric tons in 2015), saves up to 73 million metric tons of soybean meal. We may contribute to solve the world’s hunger issue by growing edible grains on the land which was previously utilized for soybean cultivation. As well as through the use of amino acids for feed, it is expected to reduce the nitrogen excretion of livestock and nitrogen feces by 20-30%.
