The objective of the present experiments was to determine whether the levels of supplemental methionine sources currently used in practical diets exceed the capacity of the chick to convert the supplement to L-methionine. Supplemental sources examined included DL-2-hydroxy-4-(methylthio(butanoic acid (DL-HMB, Alimet, or MHA) and DL-methionine (DL-Met). Two approaches were taken: first, the amount of enzyme activity available for conversion of the two supplemental methionine sources was… CONTINUE READING
