the lab

All Gulp! Carp products are engineered by our own scientists and carp feed specialists from within our own Product Innovation laboratory, housed directly within the factory; and these include: • Boilies and Pop Ups • Pellets • Seeds • Oils and Liquid Attractors

What makes Berkley Gulp! Carp Baits more effective? The answer is our unique formulation and manufacturing processes. Located at Etten Leur in the Netherlands, the Berkley Product Innovation Centre provides a great opportunity to study and develop the best Carp baits for the best Carp anglers. The main advantage of this new laboratory and production facility is to control every single step of the studies, to ensure we provide the angler with scientifically proven baits every time. This gives us a big advantage over many of our competitors, who, unlike Berkley, do not own the whole formulation and manufacturing processes.

Testing Process The main aim of Gulp! Carp baits is to provide superior catch rates for Carp anglers, using baits that are proven to be, both highly effective, and convenient to use on every session! This aim demanded that we built a large team of more than 60 recognised Carp anglers within the UK and Europe to fully evaluate and refine the baits prior to launch. The testing team gave feedback to the research team, until we developed the perfect formulas and flavours for improved catch rates. Gulp! Carp products have been tested and evaluated rigorously over the past 24 months. Each bait has been evaluated in different weather conditions, water temperatures, and in both lakes and rivers to produce the perfect formulation for today’s carp angler. The superior Gulp! Carp bait ingredients produced better results versus the competitor baits tested during the approval and research period. In tests, our Gulp! Carp baits proved far superior to the competitor’s baits used, with an average 30% higher comparative catch rate recorded. The Gulp! Carp laboratory is the start of a long story within the true spirit of the Berkley brand, one that has been synonymous with the big carp scene for over 25 years. Berkley can now provide the Carp angler with superior quality bait to catch more fish, time after time!

boiliEs pop UPS ups & POP We believe that our boilie range consists of the best baits available, and over the past two years our Consultants and Field Testers have rigorously tested all baits throughout the UK and Europe to the point where we have created one of the best ready made bait ranges available; with no compromise given on ingredient quality or soluble attractors used. All our bait formulas have been developed to provide not only high attraction levels, but also essential food sources, to ensure that your results only get better as the fish stay on the bait for longer.

All our production is in-house, utilising the skills of our own Bait Chemist, who is in charge of all operations. We even make our own flavours unlike many other bait manufacturers. We have invested heavily in Research and Development to ensure that our baits are among the finest any Carp angler can buy. As with every item in our product range, our food grade boilies are fully researched and contain only the best ingredients to ensure that we provide highly digestible baits with optimal nutritional profiles. The secret behind the Berkley Gulp! Carp bait’s unrivalled success in testing lies in using only the highest quality ingredients, researched and developed internally, and produced in our own production facility.

pELlEts Our complete pellet range is made using the highest production standards in Europe for Carp nutrition. We do not produce any pressed pellets in our range, but only the very best extruded pellets. In our extrusion process, raw materials are first ground to the correct particle size, normally the consistency of a coarse flour. The dry mix is then passed through a pre-conditioner, where other ingredients are added, and steam is injected to begin the essential pre-cooking process. This preconditioned mix is then passed through an extruder, and then forced through a die where it is cut to the desired length. The cooking process takes place within the extruder where the product produces its own friction and heat due to the pressure generated (10–20 bar) to complete the cooking process. This extrusion cooking process gives the following enhanced food benefits: • Starch gelatinization • Protein denaturation

16

• Inactivation of raw food enzymes • Destruction of naturally occurring toxins • The reduction of micro-organisms in the final product Berkley Gulp! pellets are a range of feed pellets that have all been designed to attract and hold fish in your swim. The ingredients used are selected to create highly attractive and palatable pellets. The flavours used will create a powerful flavour trail that leads the fish to the fishing area and triggers a very strong feeding response. All our products are nutritious and palatable to fish, containing all the necessary vitamins; whilst no harmful preservatives are used. All the ingredients used are natural and biologically degradable.

liquids

SEAWEED & KELP (All Seasons) Our Gulp! Seaweed & Kelp liquid attractant is made using only the best Kelp sourced from Norway. Being rich in both Vitamins and Minerals, this Kelp attractor exhibits incredible pulling power towards Carp; and by adding Seaweed we have given an extra edge to this liquid attractant. This liquid has been reported as “One of the best liquid attractants by far”, according to many of our experienced Consultants and Field Testers. AMINO MIX (All Seasons) This Gulp! Amino Mix is actually nutritional medicine intended for human use, and has been formulated to assist digestion and nutrition in those patients suffering from eating disorders and poor food digestion. It is a strong smelling red liquid which contains extracts of fresh Liver, Spleen, complex Amino Acids, Vitamins and Minerals. Being predigested, it is also very easily assimilated by the Carp and, as such, can form a vital part of any long term food bait. Use between 15 and 25ml per 16oz/500g of base mix, or use it on your hook baits, free offerings or pellets for that extra edge. LIVER & FISH (All Seasons) It has a very strong slightly sweet taste and a totally individual smell that just screams ‘food’ at the Carp. Like Gulp! Amino Mix, it too, is Amino Acid based, but with added Liver extracts. It also contains a unique fish extract, and combines to produce a very powerful liquid attractor. Use between 15 and 25ml per 16oz/500g of base mix, or use it on your hook baits, free offerings or pellets for maximum pulling power. LIQUID BETAINE (Summer / Autumn) Betaine is a naturally occurring substance that is present in minute quantities in many plants, yeasts, fungi and in the flesh of fish and crustaceans. It’s potential as a powerful natural attractant has long been recognised in the world of fish nutrition. Our unique Gulp! Liquid Betaine can be used in a base mix (use between 15 and 25ml per 16oz/500g), or simply add to dips; glug, or use as a soak for your boilies, hook baits or pellets. GLM EXTRACT (All Seasons) A real Carp magnet, and arguably, one of the best available. The famous Green Lipped Mussel Extract is very rich in naturally occurring Betaine, and boasts a superb shellfish smell, with one of the most distinctive tastes imaginable. Our Gulp! Liquid GLM Extract can be used as an additive to a base mix but try it as a hook bait boost, and you will be truly amazed. CORN STEEP LIQUOR (All Seasons) Our Gulp! Corn Steep Liquor is of the highest quality and consistency available; made from top quality Maize Grain to produce a liquid food with a well defined Amino Acid composition, plus a high level of Reducing Sugars. This results in a strong smelling liquid that is one of the top Carp attractors. Use between 15 and 25ml per 16oz/500g of base mix, or soak your hook baits or pop-ups in the pure Corn Steep Liquor.

Cream and Milk Liquid attractant is an excellent appetite stimulator, and this one is very sweet, very smooth and creamy in both taste and smell. Extremely effective when poured over particles, used in a spod mix, or as a bait soak, as it also produces a highly visual trigger for the fish. FRUIT ATTRACTOR (Autumn / Winter) This Gulp! Fruit attractor is an excellent appetite stimulator, and this one is very sweet, and very fruity; in both taste and smell. This attractor has proved to be very effective when poured over particles, in a spod mix, or again as a bait soak.

Hemp Oil can be used as a pellet ‘Glug’ and will add both high attraction and further nutritional value to both your loose feed and ground bait, especially in ‘method’ style mixes.

Gulp Sardine Oil 500ml (Summer/Autumn) Gulp Salmon Oil 500ml (Summer/Autumn) Gulp Liver Oil 500ml (All Seasons) Gulp Fish Feed Oil 500ml (All Seasons) Any top quality bait needs a fat content to balance its nutritional profile, and our specially treated Gulp! Oils are made to provide just the right source of naturally occurring Fatty Acids, the same as we use in our Berkley Gulp! Carp Boilies. This Gulp! Oil does not thicken in cold temperatures, and, as such, it is ideal for all-year-round use. These very versatile oils can all be used as an additive to your base mix, or as an extra boost to your pellets or spod mix, and to further customise your baiting strategy.
