dairy and beef enterprises both now and looking to the future. A vital component in overcoming this challenge, is supplying modern productive ruminants with optimal levels of ammonia for the rumen to function effectively. Excess ammonia leads to excreted nitrogen waste, whilst a deficit impacts fibre digestion. Optigen® provides a slow-release consistent source of nonprotein nitrogen (NPN) to the rumen bacteria over time, leading to an increase in microbial protein, an improvement in fibre digestion and a reduction in nitrogen excretion. A recent meta-analysis on Optigen evaluated the results of 17 dairy studies carried out in 6 countries, and 17 beef studies carried out in 9 countries. The research found Optigen to be a viable substitute or supplementation for plant protein sources in ruminant rations. The proven benefits of Optigen in dairy cows

TUBERMINE® GP potato protein provides protein enrichment and is known for its richness in essential amino acids available in higher amounts than in traditional proteins. The outstanding digestibility is particularly well suited to the young, newly-weaned animal’s high protein requirements and is well recognised as an excellent source of protein for piglet feed. LYSAMINE® GPS concentrated protein extracted from peas, is a valued nutritional ingredient in many applications. Its excellent digestibility along with its naturally low antitrypsin activity makes it a protein of choice in the nutrition of young animals particularly piglets. VITEN® Vital wheat gluten natural protein extracted from wheat, is a water-insoluble complex protein. Recognized especially for its high glutamic acid content, the plantbased protein shows exceptional digestibility and can be used in the formulation of high-performance feeds by limiting the risk of non-digested

GLUTALYS® corn gluten meal is a highly digestible protein concentrate rich in sulphur amino acids (methionine cystine). A polyvalent protein source, it offers advantages in formulas for ruminants because of the low natural degradability of the protein fraction in the rumen and its high post ruminal digestibility

treated and purified to a nutritious, high-quality feed grade.

Utilising our two stage patented cooking process, provides high quality rumen- bypass protein and high oil, whilst maintaining ileal digestibility levels; with good amino acid profile and high in EFA. Reduced levels of TIA and urease activity ensuring optimum nutrient uptake.

With the global population forecast to exceed 10 billion by 2050, the demand for protein is increasing in line with population growth and the emergence of a large middle class with strong purchasing power. The challenge is rooted in a combination of constrained available farm land and the need to feed the increasing populations in a sustainable manner. The clearance of rainforests to produce soy or the uncontrolled extraction of wild fish for the production of fishmeal is putting unsustainable pressure on vital ecosystems. By contrast, Unibio’s technology is highly resource efficient in respect of land and water usage. Uniprotein® is grown by anaerobic fermentation using four different microbes. The biomass is heat-treated for a short period of time to sterilise the product and then spray-dried to a powder or pellet product with an approximately 70% crude protein content, 9% crude fat, 8% ash and 8% nitrogen-free extracts with a dry matter content of 94%. As a protein ingredient for animal or fish feed, Uniprotein® is very comparable to the composition of premium fishmeal with a similar amino acid profile in the essential amino acids. This past year has been highly successful with Unibio having signed a strategic partnership agreement with long term partner, Stafilies, to grow commercial production of Uniprotein® at its full industrial scale
