Velcro & Dairy Nutrition

According to folklore, a man and his dog returned one day from a hunting trip and found themselves covered with burrs of burdock. Examining the burrs, the man noticed their hooks, which caught securely to the man’s clothing and to the dog’s fur. The possibility of mimicking this phenomenon stuck in the man’s head. After some persistence, velcro was born!

How does this relate to dairy nutrition?

Quite simply, through biomimicry. By using an ethylcellulose coating, Mepron creates a time-released flow of methionine which mimics the natural digestive process, allowing for optimized labile protein reserves and for a consistent uptake of methionine by the liver into the bloodstream.
