Biolys® source of amino acid lysine for poultry and swine



Biolys® is an innovative lysine source with many advantages for animal nutrition. With Biolys®, your animals get an optimized diet – effectiveness guaranteed.


Reducing feed costs by balancing the amino acid composition in your livestock diet is a sound method to boost efficiency, but it requires precision. Lysine is an essential and limiting amino acid in feed for poultry, swine, fish, crustaceans and dairy cows. A lysine-deficient diet can have an impact on your animals’ growth performance. 


Biolys® is a highly effective and reliable source of lysine that enables unsurpassed precision in balancing amino acids. At a concentration of 54.6%, Biolys® has a higher proportion of L-lysine than typically contained in comparable products. It not only enables you to meet requirements for the essential amino acid L-lysine, Biolys® also contains valuable byproducts resulting from its fermentation – additional nutrients and energy that further benefit your livestock. 

The result is lower feeds costs for pigs, poultry and aquatic species. Using Biolys® in a lysine-deficient diet significantly increases ADG and FCR. In addition, it helps reduce waste emissions through a higher feed conversion rate for an improved environmental footprint.
