Timet® Logo

Timet® contains 55% of rumen-protected microencapsulated DL-Methionine.


Despite methionine is essential for maximal milk production, unprotected methionine is rapidly and extensively degraded by rumen microorganisms before it passes to the small intestine for absorption. In order to deliver available methionine to ruminants strategies that protect the amino acid from rumen degradation are needed.

Methionine in Timet® is microencapsulated in a lipid matrix in order to by-pass the rumen and be highly available at the intestinal level. Different studies demonstrated that Timet® increased plasma methionine concentrations. It optimizes nitrogen metabolism of the dairy cow and improves milk protein yield.
Timet® if used alone or in combination with Relys® allows to obtain an amino acid balanced ration so to maximize milk and milk solids output.

Nutritional evaluation of Timet® is available for nutritional software based on the dynamic models (CNCPS and CPM).
The degree of rumen by-pass of Timet® has been certified by independent research institutes applying the in-vivo nylon bags technique and availability in plasma.
