Amino Acid Nutrition in Monogastrics: Going beyond the Ideal Protein

It is widely recognized that appropriate nutrition is a major factor that influences the survival and subsequent growth and development of all animals. While feed remains the single most important cost in animal production, interventions aimed at enhancing the efficiency of amino acid utilization may provide new avenues for improving profitability and reducing the impact of animal production on the environment. Decades of research in this area allowed us to understand the nutritional value and dietary requirements of most nutrients including amino acids in monogastric animals. The physiological function of amino acids goes beyond their function as precursors for proteins. A fundamental question yet to be answered is how absorptive and post-absorptive metabolism of amino acids influences their subsequent partition into anabolic and catabolic pathways. This information has a great value in increasing the profitability and decreasing pollution related to animal operations.
