Amino acid-based animal health solution launched by METEX

Smart Africa Digital AcademyMETEX NOOVISTAGO, an animal nutrition expert from France, has recently announced the launch of a new solution range: inneus for pig and poultry


According to METEX, the inneus range of products, are solutions based on a synergistic combination of functional amino acids potentialised by specifically selected polyphenols. 

inneus aims to positively influence intestinal health in order to help the host better cope with physiological and sanitary challenges such as weaning for piglets, or coccidiosis for chickens. inneus is said to be the result of an intense and fruitful research and development programme at METEX, aiming to understand the role of the functional amino acids and their synergies in the support of digestive physiology of monogastric animals. 

METEX said that its research and development team focused the effort on functional amino acids scientific concept, trying to design a complete solution, targeting the four main pillars of gut health; gut barrier function, immune fitness, oxidative status homeostasis, and microbiota balance.

Kostas Syriopoulos, brand in charge of inneus, explained, “It has been a really exciting challenge. From the literature and transcriptomic analysis of the intestine, we’ve been able to identify some key candidates and their roles. The objective was then to find the right combination and the right synergy, to end up with a complete solution which can be implemented at a consistent dose, reaching all key aspects of digestive health. 

“We’ve found out the need to potentialise the specific targeting of functional amino acids with a selected polyphenol, notably to reach the hindgut and be able to positively modulate the microbiota,” Kostas furthered. 

METEX said that the results of this research and development programme have been disclosed through several scientific publications in congress such as JRPDPP, and soon WPC. The company has made available two inneus solutions, one each for piglets and poultry.
