“Biotin is produced by a small number of mainly Chinese manufacturers and is currently in an oversupply situation. And we are seeing Chinese lysine suppliers expanding their capacity,” says Martijn de Cocq, Lead Analyst at Feedinfo News Service. “Integrating Biotin 2% and L-Lysine HCL 98% (Chinese Origin) to our price index makes sense as China continues to be the largest supplier of feed grade vitamins and amino acids worldwide.”
The news comes on the heels of the recent inclusions of L-Valine and D-Calpan to the price index as well as historical price charts for the entire amino acid and vitamin ranges covered on a frequent basis.
