High amino acid content and excellent digestibility make fish meals a valuable ingredient in animal feeds. Fish in particular is rich in lysine and sulfur-containing amino acids like methionine and cysteine: a perfect complement to plant-based protein sources like soy. However, the amount of amino acids contained in fish meals varies widely. This, and the fact that different manufacturing processes are used, leads to drastic variations in quality.
Use AMINONIR® to measure the nutrient, amino acid and energy content of your products. Use your near infrared (NIR) device and cut out the guesswork about the quality of the fish meals by determining the amount of valuable ingredients like lysine and other amino acids. Once you have scanned the samples – ground or unground – and uploaded the spectra to Evonik, you will receive a complete evaluation within minutes.
AMINONIR® adds up to fish meals on a constantly high quality level – and more money in your bank account.

SEE THE OTHER FIELDS OF APPLICATION THAT AMINONIR® IS PERFECTLY SUITED FOR:
Feed mills receive and release thousands of shipments, which requires fast but nevertheless accurate and precise solutions for quality control. Carry out precise nutrient evaluations of more than 60 different ingredients.
Finetune the heat treatment at your soybean processing plant to get the best possible product with optimum nutritional value. Eliminate trypsin inhibitors and lectins. Protect amino acids like lysine, cystine and arginine.
Producers of mustard or rapeseed meals
Mustard and rapeseed meals vary greatly in their content of antinutritional factors like glucosinolates and erucic acid. In addition, processing has a
huge impact on heat labile nutrients. Optimize the production and marketing of your mustard and rapeseed meals.
Producers of corn DDGS
Carry out precise nutrient evaluations of corn and corn DDGS and gain deeper insights into qualitative differences between corn deliveries, different batches of corn DDGS and changes in quality over time.
Producers of animal byproduct meals
Animal byproduct meals are valuable due to their high amino acid content but are processed in many different ways. That’s why their quality can vary drastically. Use quick spot checks to demonstrate the quality of your products and to differentiate in the market.
