What Are the Application Fields of Threonine?

Among the eight essential amino acids required by humans and animals, threonine is the fourth amino acid after methionine, lysine, and tryptophan. Threonine plays an increasingly important role in human growth and development, and is widely used in the food industry, feed industry, and medical treatment.


1. The application of threonine in food


Due to the high degree of processing, large production, long shelf life, and wide circulation of current foods, nutrients are prone to damage and loss and need to be supplemented. Therefore, the importance of food fortifiers in the food industry has become increasingly prominent, and amino acid fortifiers occupy an important position in the production of food fortifiers. The co-heating of threonine protein and glucose can produce a burnt fragrance, which has the effect of enhancing fragrance. It is generally used in combination with other amino acids to fortify cereals. And sometimes threonine production is also used in cakes, baby food, and milk to have an antioxidant effect.


2. The application of threonine in feed additives


Threonine, lysine, methionine, and tryptophan are listed as four major feed additives, mainly used for juvenile piglets and poultry. Threonine is an important element in livestock and poultry feed. Threonine is usually added to livestock and poultry feeds. Threonine protein can improve the biological value of feed protein, balance various amino acids, promote protein deposition, and reduce animal ammonia excretion, reduce environmental pollution and improve breeding conditions.


3. Threonine in the pharmaceutical industry


Threonine is also widely used. Its iron salt can be used as an anti-anemia drug, and can be used to prepare amino acid infusion and comprehensive amino acid preparations. At the same time, it also has the medicinal effect of promoting human development and anti-fatty liver. It is also an intermediate in the manufacture of the highly effective antibiotic monamictin, and used in biochemical research. Clinically, threonine also has the function of improving immunity, and threonine protein can promote the differentiation and development of bone marrow T lymphocyte precursors into mature T lymphocytes.
