Salmon trial validates nutritional, sustainable potential of SylPro wood-to-food ingredient

October 11, 2019 |

In France, a scientific study evaluating SylPro, aj alternative protein ingredient for juvenile Atlantic salmon feed made by Arbiom, found that SylPro can be used to replace fish meal or plant-based proteins in feed for juvenile Atlantic salmon, a crucial developmental stage, and deliver equivalent nutritional performance as conventional protein sources up to 20 percent inclusion level.  In the study, Atlantic salmon feeds were formulated with Arbiom’s high-protein ingredient as a complement to or replacement for fishmeal and plant-based proteins at various inclusion rates.

The study was designed to evaluate the product’s nutritional performance in terms of body weight gain as well as its effects on the gut microbiome, which researchers measured over the course of a five-week trial period. SylPro is produced from wood through Arbiom’s process, which integrates fractionation and bioconversion technologies to efficiently convert wood residues into fermentable substrates for micro-organism production through pre-treatment and fermentation processes. The final product is a dried yeast, which is nutritional protein source for use in aquafeed, and other animal feeds.
