provided solutions for efficient animal nutrition. During the last 3 years, Biochem intensively investigated the application of a functional protein source, named TechnoYeast®. It is a hydrolyzed yeast based on the strain Kluyveromyces fragilis. TechnoYeast® is produced by a gentle process in which all nutrients are released and made more available for high digestibility. TechnoYeast® contains both components of the yeast cell wall – mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) and β-glucans – along with the constituents of the yeast extract: highly digestible proteins, essential and functional amino acids such as the umami-tasting glutamic acid, nucleic acids as a source of nucleotides, and minerals. The digestibility of hydrolyzed yeast is comparable to animal protein sources. Derived from the functional amino acids and certain components of the nucleic acid, the umami taste improves the palatability of the feed and improves feed intake. The highly-digestible proteins and nucleic acids support healthy growth. Recent research studies with TechnoYeast® fed to piglets showed a significant increase in average daily feed intake and weight gain, comparable or even better effects than when compared with blood plasma-fed piglets. Moreover, the MOS inside TechnoYeast® contributes to the suppression of pathogens, such as E. coli and salmonella, significantly reducing the potential risk of disease in young animals.

than 30 years. Our products SoyPass, RaPass and Amipro feature high levels of undegradable, yet highly digestible protein that are perfect for today’s ration balancing programs. Soybean meal and rapeseed meal are known to be high value protein sources for animal feeds. During digestion, however, some of the vegetable protein is broken down in the rumen of the cow, far too early in the digestive system for the high yielding cow to fully use it. Bypass products overcome this problem by protecting the protein while in the rumen, but allowing it to be fully digested within the small intestine. Consequently, better utilization of the essential amino acids



occurs resulting in improved milk production. SoyPass, RaPass and Amipro are manufactured and sold by our approved licensees. All of our bypass proteins are produced according


to our strict quality requirements, and are among the most consistent


bypass proteins on the market. Borregaard UK Ltd

Cherwell Silos Limited


Cherwell Valley Silos Ltd have a long, well established reputation for


providing specialised cooked protein and oilseed products to the animal feed industry. Products available are CV-Soy - full fat soya (Profat typically 54%), and PURA LM (Profat 42%) - a mixture of domestic pulses and whole rapeseed, recently upgraded with a lower moisture content for better handling characteristics and improved nutrient density. In addition we offer a UK Linseed based blend Linbean (Profat 38%) which is a highly digestible alternative to Linseed expellers. The main soya product is now conventional ‘Any origin’ (CV-Soy

Unibio Uniprotein ® – the future in animal feed Unibio is a Danish biotechnology company with a core focus on fermentation technologies, allowing a highly scalable production of bacterial protein meal. Uniprotein®, the end-product resulting from Unibio’s U-Loop® technology is a protein-rich biomass that addresses the world’s growing need for animal protein, which will continue to increase in line with population growth and the emergence of a large middle class with strong purchasing power. The product is the result of a natural process industrialized by Unibio and is not genetically modified. Uniprotein® is non-polluting as it is produced by a microbial culture with methane as the sole carbon and energy source. Uniprotein® is a close substitute to high-quality fishmeal (LT Fishmeal), but it can also substitute soybean meal, both being two increasingly scarce resources. This novel protein source disrupts the traditional food value chain while mitigating the traditional challenges by decoupling protein production from the fluctuating agriculture and stressed fishing industries. Crop and land can thus be used to produce food for humans
