ALIMET® feed supplement is an 88% active source of methionine. In addition to proven performance, ALIMET delivers an organic acid effect, reduces nitrogen excretions and provides better performance during heat stress.

Novus - MHA®

MHA® feed supplement is a proven effective source of methionine activity. Because of its dry granular powder form, MHA is the leading source of HMTBa inclusions in premixes and farm feed mills. MHA delivers organic calcium, reduces nitrogen excretion and provides better performance during heat stress.


ACTIVATE® nutritional feed acid is a dry combination of Gut Environment Modifiers (GEMs) and HMTBa. ACTIVATE is used to maintain a healthy gut flora and during antibiotic-free periods due to vaccination windows or withdrawal diets.

Novus - CIBENZA®

The CIBENZA® feed additive is a special blend of enzymes that allows for maximum flexibility in dietary formulations. CIBENZA can optimize dietary energy and protein while providing an excellent feed cost-saving tool.

Novus - MINTREX®

MINTREX® chelated trace minerals combine HMTBa with an essential trace mineral in a two-to-one chelated molecule. The result is greater bioavailability, digestive tract stability and a residual methionine effect that can reduce the required level of supplemental methionine per ton of feed.
