Betaine is the trimethyl derivative of the amino acid glycine. As a by-product of sugarbeet processing, betaine is commercially available as a feed additive. Due to both its methyl donor and its amino acid function, betaine is involved in protein and energy metabolism. In animal nutrition, betaine is widely discussed as a ‘carcass modifier’ due to its lipotropic and growth-promoting effects.
