Who We Are

We are Amlan International, and We Believe in the Power of Supporting Normal Gastrointestinal Health Through the Science of Minerals.

A healthy intestine supports overall animal health and welfare, which is why we develop natural mineral-based feed additives for protein-producing animals. A healthy intestinal environment allows for ideal nutrient absorption, optimal animal performance and economical production. 

And by following sustainable mining practices and using natural ingredients in our products, our products are made with the world in mind.


Oil-Dri® Corporation of America and Amlan International: Sharing More Than a Mineral

Amlan International is the animal health business of Oil-Dri® Corporation of America, a leader in sorbent mineral technology.

Oil-Dri is publicly traded but was founded and has been operated by the Jaffee family since 1941. Amlan leverages these more than 80 years of Oil-Dri mineral science expertise to develop our mineral-based feed additives. 

Oil-Dri and the single-source calcium montmorillonite used in Amlan products are based in the USA, and because Amlan and Oil-Dri are vertically integrated, we control the quality, reliability and safety of the mineral. Additionally, as the animal health business of Oil-Dri, Amlan shares not only their hundreds of years of mineral reserves but also the values and business ethics of Oil-Dri.

Our Calcium Montmorillonite

What makes Amlan different from other companies that offer feed additives? Our novel calcium montmorillonite.

The unique chemical and structural properties of our calcium montmorillonite allow our proprietary thermal processing techniques to alter the mineral’s native surface chemistry. We use this method to tailor our calcium montmorillonite to specific product applications for use in many different animal species.

Additionally, synergistic blends of our calcium montmorillonite with other feed ingredients can further support normal or optimal gut function to ensure ideal nutrient absorption, optimal animal performance and economical production.  

Multiple governments, including the United States, the European Union, China, Korea, Indonesia and Brazil (with other countries pending) have recognized the unique mineral-based technology in our formulated products Varium® and NeoPrime® (available in select international markets; not available in the USA) and have each issued a patent for the products’ modes of action.

Amlan and Oil-Dri Innovation Centers

If you want to conduct innovative research, you need a state-of-the-art facility to perform it in — and a global team of highly skilled specialists to accomplish it. That’s why Oil-Dri and Amlan built (and continue to invest in) cutting-edge innovation centers — the Richard M. Jaffee Center for Applied Microbiology and the Nick Jaffee Center for Innovation.

The Richard M. Jaffee Center for Applied Microbiology accelerates pioneering life sciences research, contributing to the development of feed additives that proactively ensure a normal, healthy intestinal environment in production animals. The Nick Jaffee Center for Innovation is home to the extensive Oil-Dri research and development program that has resulted in many breakthrough products and market applications. 

There is a lot of technology inherent to our minerals. As we invest in R&D, we unlock its true potential.
