Lysine business

When expanding the business, Daesang will enter the market with not only lysine but other amino acids used in feeds to contribute to the progress of the livestock industry.


Lysine, market forerunner in amino acids for animal feed

Daesang was the first Korean company to enter the lysine business in 1973. Lysine is an essential amino acid that helps the growth and development of livestock, and thus indispensable in animal feed manufacturing. The lysine business has seen stable growth as consumption of meat held steady in advanced countries and increased with economic growth in developing countries.


Daesang uses its background in fermentation to manufacture amino acids for livestock

To boost immune system and enhance growth performance for livestock, Daesang has produced and supplied many amino acids such as L-Arginine, L-Valine, L-Tryptophan and L-Histidine to its valued customers. Outside of amino acids, Daesang has provided bacterial cell mass from lysine fermentation and corn gluten meal as protein sources.
